Glenbrook Parish Shroud of Turin Presentation and Talk

February 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

St Finbar’s Parish, Glenbrook, is hosting a presentation by local parishioner and former journalist William West on the Shroud of Turin on Tuesday 21 February at 7.30pm. Entry is via gold coin donation.

The Shroud of Turin is a four-and-a-half metre long, one-metre-wide linen cloth bearing the front and back image of a scourged, crucified man.

Since it appeared in 1578, many believers have venerated the Shroud as the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. It has also been the subject of scrutiny by sceptics. The Holy See, which has had custody of the Shroud since 1983, has never taken a definitive stance on the Shroud’s authenticity but many popes have visited it and attested to its devotional power.

Former journalist and Sydney Catholic William West, who is a parishioner of St Finbar’s, and who has spent nearly 20 years at The Australian and has been founding editor of multiple publications, weighed into the debate with his book, Riddles of the Shroud – Questions Science Can’t Answer.
