Memorial of Our Lady of Kibeho – 28 November and of the Saints

Our Lady of Kibeho:   is the name given to Marian apparitions concerning several adolescents, in the 1980s in Kibeho, south-western Rwanda.   The apparitions communicated various messages to the schoolchildren, including an apocalyptic vision of Rwanda descending into violence and hatred.   The visions may be regarded as an ominous foreshadowing of the Rwandan Genocide, and particularly the second Kibeho Massacre in 1995.   The school where the visions occurred became a place of slaughter during the Genocide as dozens of children were shot and hacked to death by Hutu terrorists.
In 2001, the local bishop of the Catholic Church officially recognised the visions of three schoolchildren as authentic.   The feast day of Our Lady of Kibeho is today, 28 November, the anniversary of the initial apparition to Alphonsine Mumureke in 1981.   The Marian sanctuary at Kibeho was named “Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows” in 1992.   The first stone was laid on 28 November 1992.   In a 2003 agreement between the local ordinary and the Society of the Catholic Apostolate (Pallotines), the rectorate of the Shrine of Our Lady of Kibeho is entrusted to the Pallotine Fathers.   The rector is appointed by the local bishop and the Regional Pallottine Rector.Our Lady of Kibeho
