I had been considering this beautiful pilgrimage to Rwanda guided by Immaculee Ilibagiza, survivor of the Rwandan Holocaust and author of Left to Tell. I won't be able to make the journey this fall, but the director gave me permission to share the information with others who might be interested. They have space available for a few more pilgrims.
A little info:
The trip is scheduled for November 23 - December 3. Among the itinerary highlights will be a trip to Mother Teresa's orphanage in Kigali, a tour of the Genocide Memorial (said to be a difficult tour, but beautiful), a journey to Immaculee's village and hiding house, and a visit to the place where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in the 1980's in Kibeho - the only Church approved apparition site in Africa. There will be morning prayer and daily mass of course.
If any of you feel called or are interested in participating, just send me an email and I'll forward all the details and contact information. Thanks!
