Since 2008, Saint Patrick's Church has had the privilege of ministering among fellow Rwanda Anglicans in Kibungo Diocese. Kibungo is located in the South East section of the country not far from Tanzania (see map below).
Rwanda is a beautiful country of hills and small mountains - hence its nickname Land of a Thousand Hills. The people of Rwanda are a gracious, kind and welcoming people. However, many carry a burden because of the 1994 genocide that left a million dead.
Over the last two decades the country has been rebuilding. The churches have been doing the same thing - seeking to grow and deepen disciples and leaders. Saint Patrick's Church has had the privilege of working among the leaders of the diocese - priests and lay pastors - to offer training for them to deepen their leadership skills.
Saint Patrick's also has the joy of having a sister relationship with Musamvu Parish in Kibungo Diocese. Our partnership mutual and reciprocal.
We have had the joy of taking teams to Rwanda three times and hope to continue to do so in the future.
