Session

From Horror to Hope – Learning from Rwanda

Session date: Monday 4th August 2014 Session time: 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm Session location: Diamond Session track

2014 marks the 20th Anniversary of two significant events, one traumatic and one hopeful. The Genocide in Rwanda saw the slaughter of an estimated 800,000 people in 100 days. In Northern Ireland, ceasefires were declared by the main paramilitary groups, paving the way for peace. This special evening event looks back over the past 20 years in Rwanda and offers a window on the work and witness of the Church, as it offers hope and continues to lead the quest for peace and reconciliation. An event to challenge and inspire all who share this vision for the Church in
Northern Ireland.
