A dramatic story of healing and reconciliation from the heart of Rwanda. The Sheen Center will host the premiere of the documentary Forgiveness: The Secret of Peace , on the life and work of Fr. Ubald Rugirangoga, a Catholic priest in Rwanda, based on his book of the same name. Through this film, Fr. Ubald shares his message of forgiveness as a pathway to reconciliation and peace, a message he has steadfastly shared with thousands of his fellow Rwandans in the aftermath of the unspeakable horror of their country’s 1994 genocide. His mission is to bring forgiveness, peace and reconciliation to the people of Rwanda through God’s word and healing. The evening will include a screening of the film followed by a panel discussion with Fr. Ubald Rugirangoga, Katsey Long (Executive Producer/ Director), and other special guests.
Date/Time: Friday, February 22, 7:30–9pm.
Location: Sheen Center, The Loreto Theater, 18 Bleecker St., New York, NY 10012. Tickets are $20 each, which includes a donation to Fr. Ubald’s mission. To buy tickets, visit here.
