Since 2008, Saint Patrick's Church has had the privilege of ministering among fellow Anglicans in Kibungo Diocese. Kibungo is located in the South East section of the country not far from Tanzania.
Our parish has sent teams to minister in Kibungo five times. We have also welcomed leaders from Kibungo diocese to our parish for fellowship and ministry.
Our ministry in Kibungo has centered on training pastors, serving with our sister parish (Musamvu parish) and the Center for Women's Ministry - a PEER counsleing ministry aiming to aid women in addressing trauma from the Rwandan genocide, domestic violence, AIDS and other issues.
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 being part of this.
