Lecture: Reflections on a Shared Pilgrimage Through Uganda and Rwanda


Location: Hesburgh Center Auditorium

Last summer, Fr. Emmanuel Katongole led a group of Notre Dame faculty, staff, and students on a “Pilgrimage of Pain and Hope” through Uganda and Rwanda.

The pilgrimage included visits to places of historical significance (the source of the Nile, Genocide memorials); religious shrines (Uganda Martyrs, Kibeho Marian Shrine); cultural destinations (Queen Elizabeth National Game Park, Ndele cultural center); and meetings with leaders at Holy Cross missions in Uganda, St. Jude’s farm, and others involved in peace and justice work in Uganda and Rwanda.

Notre Dame faculty, staff, students are invited to hear Fr. Emmanuel and the pilgrims reflect on their experiences in Uganda and Rwanda, sharing photos and stories. Participants may ask questions and consider how they might join or support the pilgrimage in 2015.

Sponsored by the Department of Theology.
