Area residents and visitors will have two chances later this month to learn about the Shroud of Turin from an expert on the artifact who has attended all three public shroud exhibitions in Turin, Italy.

Russ Breault, who has been researching and lecturing on the Shroud of Turin for more than 30 years, will present Shroud Encounter at St. Simon Catholic Church at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22 and at noon Sunday, Aug. 23.

“I will be doing a presentation known as Shroud Encounter, a comprehensive, 90-minute presentation with 200 images that will be shown on the big screen,” Breault said. “It’s extremely intriguing and it will be quite an experience for those who can make it.

“There will be two opportunities for people to see it,” he said. “They will be the same presentation.”

Parishioner Bill Roy read about Breault and his Shroud presentation in the Catholic magazine Faith.

“I followed up to see if we could bring it here,” Roy said.

The Knights of Columbus is underwriting the event.
