Rwanda – Monastery of Gihindamuyaga (OSB)
Project 3231 - Scholarships for several brothers
The monastery was founded in 1958 by the abbey of Maredsous (Belgium). The community comprises twenty-four brothers. In addition to farming and agriculture, the brothers have a brick factory and also make jewellery. Pastoral activities: sessions, parish, accompaniment. Some brothers are teachers.
The community has the concern to form itself in order to be able to respond to its own needs but also to the needs related to pastoral care. Several brothers are in formation in different fields (philosophy, theology, accounting, etc.). Financial assistance would be needed to help with the costs involved (registration, travel, etc.).
Sum requested: €10,730
