On Tuesday 20th June 2023 at 7pm, vespers were held at S.S Peter and Paul church to launch the exhibition of the Holy Shroud of Turin Replica. Led by Mgr. Mark Crisp, in attendance were many from various Christian denominations in Wolverhampton, including Rev. David Wright from St Peter's Collegiate Church and Rev. Linda Gilson from the Methodist Church. The St. Peters Collegiate Church choir graced the evening with beautiful singing. Pam Moon, the curator of the exhibition gave a talk on the history and mysteries surrounding the Holy Shroud of Turin. She explained how the burial shroud was used to wrap the body of Jesus, and how the image on the Turin Shroud matches all the wounds inflicted on Jesus. How the image was formed on the shroud remains a mystery. The exhibition continues in S.S Peter and Paul till the 2nd of July 2023.
The feast of Corpus Christi, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, on Sunday 11th June 2023 at S.S Peter and Paul Church in Wolverhampton climaxed with a procession of the Blessed Sacrament after Holy Mass. This involved a large joyous congregation including children who beautified the celebration with colourful petals. The procession was from S.S Peter and Paul Church to St. Peters Square where the congregation gathered and blessed the city of Wolverhampton. Mgr. Mark Crisp indicated that the gathering at St. Peters Square was very significant, since the monks invited by Lady Wulfruna (founder of Wolverhampton) many years ago to evangelise the area lived there.
