Father Ubald Rugirangoga, a Rwandan priest who is a Tutsi, will celebrate Mass with healing prayers at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27, at St. Michael Church, 1036 Co. Rd. 4, St. Cloud.
Father Rugirangoga also will visit parishes in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis Feb. 23-28 to celebrate Masses with healing prayers.
During a 1963 Hutu persecution of the Tutsi ethnic group, Father Rugirangoga’s father was killed. In 1973, he and his mother escaped Rwanda. He returned in 1978 to become a priest and was ordained in the Cyangugu Diocese in 1984, before the 1994 genocide began. Visit www.frubald.com to hear more about his healing message.
