MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of The Holy Face Project is to silently and powerfully increase 

awareness of Jesus’ presence in our world by establishing roadside billboards of 

The Holy Face of Our Lord from The Shroud of Turin.


BACKGROUND

In these turbulent and unprecedented times, our Prayer Group felt it important to bring Our Lord among us in a unique way by means of using highway billboards.  There is no verbiage on the billboard, just Our Lord’s Holy Face from The Shroud of Turin.  Some will know immediately who He is, others may question and inquire, and hopefully all will be impacted. 


Permission was obtained from the Shroud of Turin Education and Research Assn., Inc. to use a replica of the original digital image of the Holy Face on the billboards. This digital image is the one taken during the initial testing of the Shroud Committee in 1978 by official committee photographer, Barrie Schwortz.  For additional information on the Shroud of Turin, visit www.Shroud.com.


Although we personally financed our initial project, we are now in partnership with and under the non-profit umbrella of The Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, a 501c(3) entity.   The Community Foundation of the Lowcountry has been in existence for 25 years on Hilton Head Island servicing individuals, families, businesses and organizations.  All contributions through the Community Foundation are reserved in funds specific to each billboard project location for THE HOLY FACE PROJECT and are fully tax-deductible as allowable by law. Honorary and memorial donations may be indicated and acknowledgement letters are sent to donators. 


HOW YOU CAN HELP

Our ultimate goal is to maintain our existing billboards as well as expand The Holy Face Project across the United States. If you feel Our Lord nudging you to establish a billboard in your community, please contact us and we will mentor you every step of the way.

 

Kindly consider a donation.  Donations are accepted for the General Fund (used to both maintain existing projects and assist new ones) or you can choose a specific project as listed for your state.  There are currently projects in various stages of the installation process in the following locations:  

Cleveland, Ohio

Park Ridge, New Jersey

Omaha, Nebraska (Installed)

Tampa Bay/Clearwater, Florida

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina (Installed)

Richmond Hill, Georgia (Installed)

Edmonton, Canada (Installed) 

Einsiedlen, Switzerland


Finally, pray for our success. Thousands of people are viewing the Image of Our Lord every week; a silent reminder that He is with us. Thank you and God Bless.
