Honoring Our Lady of Kibeho

Back to Blog

St. Francis of Assisi Auditorium will feature stained glass windows of 20 saints, some familiar to us and some special to the people of Africa. Our Lady of Kibeho is one.

Our Lady of Kibeho is the only Marian apparition site approved by the Catholic Church on the Africa continent. Mary's 1980's appearances to three adolescents in Kibeho, Rwanda were recognized by the Vatican in 2001. You can read more about Our Lady's visitations to the children in books written by Immaculee Ilibagiza.

Father Julius has a personal connection to Our Lady of Kibeho: his mother. Perhaps he'll tell us a bit about that in our next newsletter...
