The American Confraternity of the Holy Shroud

Your role in the Confraternity

The Confraternity's mission involves evangelizing the Gospel through the Image of the Man of the Shroud and spreading knowledge about the fascinating corpus of historical and empirical evidence that points to the Shroud being the authentic burial cloth of Jesus of Nazareth. We, the Confraternity, pray for growth in devotion to the life-giving Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, as well as contemplation of his Holy Face. Aspiring members are asked to discern how they might personally work in support of the mission of the Confraternity in a way that personally enriches their own prayer and spiritual life.

Membership in ACHS requires vetted candidacy, a period of careful discernment on the part of both the candidate and the governing authorities of ACHS, and a commitment to the ACHS mission. Full ACHS membership confers the privelege to wear specific Confraternity insignia, as well as to participate in selected governance, educational, catechetical, and evangelical functions of the Confraternity.
