February 04, 2015

Nearly 600,000 people have already registered to attend a public exposition of the Shroud of Turin that begins in April, the ANSA news service reports.

The Shroud will be available for public viewing at Turin’s cathedral from April 19 through June 24, as part of a wider program of celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of St. John Bosco. Admission is free, but visitors are required to register in advance in order to control the crowds.

Pope Francis has indicated that he will visit Turin to venerate the Shroud near the close of the public exposition, on June 21.

The last public exposition of the Shroud of Turin was in 2010.
