In these turbulent and unprecedented times, we felt it important to bring Our Lord among us in a unique way by means of using highway billboards. This project was successfully done in Ireland not long ago with extremely positive results. There is no verbiage on the billboard , just Our Lord's Holy Face. 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 Association, Inc. to use the replica of the original digital image of the Holy Face on the billboard. This digital image is the one taken during the initial testing of the Shroud Committee in 1978 by official committee photographer, Barnie Schwortz.

We has had a billboard of the Holy Face of Jesus in place at the following location for over one year: Route 315 (Pritchardville, SC) - connector between Route 17 and Route 46 to Bluffton . . . visible on the way from Savannah area to Bluffton area; 1-2 miles prior to the Pink Pig Restaurant on the right side of the road. Our Rosary Prayer Group has been privately funding the billboard during this time; 16,000 cars a week pass before this billboard. The cost to maintain the billboard for one year is $1,800.
We have also been given permission by STERA, Inc. to offer copies of the Holy Face of Jesus to parishioners - 8" X 10" and 11" X 14" images are available to suggested donations of $10 and $15 respectively. We also have an 11" X 14" poster board image available for $25. All donations will help us continue to fund the Holy Face billboard.
