Turin archdiocese ready for exposition of Shroud

Catholic World News - March 25, 2010

Cardinal Severino Poletto of Turin detailed preparations for a public exposition of the Shroud of Turin during a March 25 press conference at the Vatican. More than 1.3 million people have already reserved tickets for the exposition, he said, and 4,000 volunteers have been enlisted to help pilgrims during "the first exposition of the new millennium."

The exposition will take place in Turin from April 10 through May 23. Admission will be free, but reservations are required in order to control the orderly flow of pilgrims. An official web site has been set up to allow pilgrims to make reservations.

Pope Benedict XVI will make a visit and venerate the Shroud on May 2. Representatives from the Russian Orthodox Church and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople are also expected to visit.
