Immaculee’ Ilibagiza, Rwanda Genocide survivor,
returns to St. Ann Parish for a two day retreat.
You may have been one of the 800 people who were blessed to hear Immaculee’ Ilibagiza speak at St Ann Parish in Stoughton in March of 2017. St Ann is now blessed to welcome her back in November. This time she will host a two-day retreat. It is not an overnight retreat, but one that takes place Friday evening and Saturday morning. And the retreat is meant for men and women to share in.
Ilibagiza is a New York Times best-selling author and world-renowned speaker who shares her story of a harrowing 100 days hidden in a tiny bathroom with six other women and one child, in an attempt to avoid being killed by members of the Hutu tribe in her home country of Rwanda in Eastern Africa. In that three-month period, more than 800,000 members of her tribe were relentlessly slaughtered, including her mom, dad, two brothers, grandparents and many extended family members and friends. She credits praying the rosary as the reason she is alive today.
Ilibagiza will continue to share her message of faith, forgiveness and hope during a retreat held at St. Ann on Friday, Nov. 15 and Saturday, Nov. 16. It runs from 5:00 pm until 9:00 pm on Friday and from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm on Saturday.
