4 Days Pilgrimage to our Lady of Kibeho – Rwanda Safari


clock4 days


    It was sudden and happened in a flash. A strange force descended on three young girls and the skies opened up to reveal an image of the Virgin Mary imposingly staring at them.

    The Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ reportedly appeared to three teenage girls in Kibeho in 1981. On August 19, 1982, those who saw the visions reported gruesome sights-rivers of blood, sliced heads, etcetera, which sometoday regard as an ominous foreshadowing of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

    Only one of the girls is alive today. At the time of the apparitions, the three girls were students at Groupe Scolaire Mere du Verbe, located just behind the church called Notre-Dame des Douleurs (Our Mother of Sorrows).

    Since 2001, Kibeho has become a holy place of pilgrimage for believers across the world. They pray and beseech the Virgin Mary to mediate between them and God.
