Rwandan Genocide Survivor to Bring Message of Forgiveness and Hope


In 1994, members of the Hutu tribe in Rwanda took up arms against the Tutsi tribe.  In 100 days, the Hutu tribe slaughtered over 800,000 Tutsis using only spears, clubs and machetes.  It was genocide, and few Tutsis survived.  Immaculee Ilibagiza was one of the few, but most all of her family and friends were killed.


In the years since the genocide, Immaculee has come to grips with what happened, and what she can do about it.  She has written a book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Genocide, and has been telling her story around the world. Immaculee is regarded as one of world's leading speakers on peace, faith, and forgiveness and she will share her message through a retreat at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament, 124 N. Roosevelt, Wichita Kansas. It begins Friday evening, July 14th, (4:30-9:00) and concludes Saturday morning, July 15th, (8:30-12:30).


Members of Blessed Sacrament who register early have been generously blessed with $20.00 off of their registration.  A single registration will cost $37.00 and registration for two will cost $56.00. You may register by filling out one of the early registration cards available in the parish office and turning it in on or before Friday, March 17, 2017. After Friday, March 17th the retreat will be promoted and open to the Diocese of Wichita with regular registration prices.
