World-Renowned Rwandan Survivor to Speak at Cathedral at “Evening with Immaculée”
Immaculėe Ilibagiza, survivor of the Rwanda genocide in 1994 and best-selling author of Left to Tell, Our Lady of Kibeho, and The Boy Who Met Jesus, will tell her story on Wednesday, September 20 at 6:30 p.m. Her talk will be followed by book sales and signing.
Immaculėe, a member of the Tutsi tribe, hid in a small bathroom for 91 days with seven other women as members of the rival Hutus massacred one million people throughout Rwanda, including the majority of her family. During her time in hiding, she prayed the rosary, read the Bible, and asked God to show her how to forgive the killers. Her amazing story of survival and forgiveness is an inspiration to all.
