New York Times bestselling author and popular Catholic speaker, Immaculee Ilibagiza is our speaker for the Sept. 22nd Catholic Evangelization Outreach at St. Pius X church. She is a survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
Immaculee’s talk will be based on her book, Left to Tell, where she shares how her Catholic faith guided her through this awful ordeal and the eventual forgiveness of her family’s killers. The event is free of charge. All are welcome! At St. Pius X Catholic Church, 4949 Council St NE, Cedar Rapids.
Immaculee Ilibagiza was born in Rwanda and studied electronic and mechanical engineering at the National University. She lost most of her family during the 1994 genocide. Four years later, she emigrated to the United States and began working at the United Nations. She is now a full-time public speaker and writer. In 2007 she established the Left to Tell Charitable Fund, which helps support Rwandan orphans.
Immaculee holds honorary doctoral degrees from the University of Notre Dame and St. John’s University. She was awarded the Mahatma Gandhi International Award for Reconciliation and Peace 2007.
