The mission of this project fund is to silently and powerfully increase awareness of Jesus' presence in San Diego by having a billboard of the Holy Face of Our Lord from the Shroud of Turin.
Devotion to The Holy Face was revealed by Jesus to Sr. Marie of St. Peter (1816 - 1848) a Carmelite nun of Tours, France. The primary purpose of the devotion is to make reparations for sins against the first three Commandments. Join us in promoting the Holy Face of Jesus in San Diego as it has been done in Ireland, Canada and South Carolina.
Ideally we would like to run this campaign as long as possible so we will change our target amount as we go along. ( :

Thank you and God bless.
We are now halfway through our Hillcrest run. We hope you can do a drive-by. Because of it's location (it's on the 6th Ave. egress to northbound 163), we're not able to meet there for prayers, but it's location more than makes up for the loss. We would like to keep moving Jesus around San Diego, but alas! we are at the end of our funds. This campaign ends the beginning of November. Thank you to all who contributed. The future is in God's hands!
We are now halfway through our Sunset Cliffs run which will end July 11. If you're in San Diego and haven't done a drive-by, I hope you can before then. Some of us prayed there on Ascension Thursday and then walked the neighboring streets distributing rosaries and holy cards. We had quite a few takers. We will do it again on June 25 at 5:30 if anyone is interested in joining us. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting July 13, the billboard will be up in Pacific Beach at Grand Ave. and Lamont St. for two months. Again thank you so much for your prayers, support and donations. Team EMSD
Update #3 As you can see, the Holy Face billboard is up! Praise be Jesus Christ and thanks to all who have donated to this project! We would love to see this duplicated in other cities/states so please share with your family and friends. (We will be happy to help.) If you're in San Diego, please do a drive-by. It's on the left side of Sunset Cliffs Blvd. as you're leaving Ocean Beach, just a little bit past the Jack-in-the-Box and providentially next to a pot shop. Please pray that this poster touches many lives. Stay tune for more updates. We're working on keeping this up here or perhaps in another part of San Diego for as long as we can.
Thank you again for donating to this project. We're now in the process of signing the contract for not 1 month BUT 2 months! Because of the negative impact on our economy, Clear Channel is offering what they are calling a Covid Q2 Stimulus price of $900 per 4 weeks! Of availability, we've settled on a location on Sunset Cliffs Blvd. facing West which has about 71,000 views. If we can raise more money, we'll leave it up (or possibly move it to a new location) as long as God permits. If you are able to, please share this site with friends and family.
Again, thank you for your generosity! iViva Cristo Rey!
First off, we want to thank all of the donors and we wanted to give you an update. The good news is that we're excited to be able to show you a mock up of what the billboard will look like. (One of our EMSD members is a very talented graphic artist and she offered to work on the project. Let's us know what you think.) The bad news is that due to the Covid-19 virus, traffic has dwindled on our highways as you may have noticed. Since we don't have the funds needed to execute it any way at this time, we decided to delay the implimentation of the project for a few more weeks and to extend the date of collecting donations. Please share this project with your friends and family. We all need Jesus more than ever! As soon as we know where it will be placed, we will let you know. Thank you again!
iViva Christo Rey!
