Fr. Ubald Rugirangoga will be visiting the Diocese of Shreveport in October.
Sponsored by the Cathedral of St. John Berchmans, Fr. Ubald will be showing his new film, Forgiveness – The Secret of Peace, at the Catholic Center’s Holoubek Theater, located at 3500 Fairfield Avenue, on Sunday, October 1. The film will begin at 6:45 p.m. and will be followed by a Q&A with Father Ubald.
Fr. Ubald has been a priest in Rwanda for 25 years. During the 1994 genocide, he lost over 80 members of his family and more than 45,000 of his parishioners were exterminated. Forgiveness – The Secret of Peace is a documentary featuring a compilation of stories of the devastating horrors of the 1994 Rwandan genocide and the efforts of Father Ubald to bring healing and reconciliation to his traumatized people.
This event is free to the public, but donations will be accepted and go towards the Center for the Secret of Peace – a center for healing in Fr. Ubald’s Diocese of Cyangugu.
The following evening, Monday, October 2, at 6:30 p.m., Fr. Ubald will be at the Cathedral of St. John Berchmans for a Mass with healing prayer. All are welcome to attend!
