Today we attended the consecration of the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Kibagabaga, Kigali. How to get there was our first challenge as we have now said goodbye to Emmanuel & Jacques. But God always has a plan, so when we met Bishop Augustin of Kivu Diocese at the guest house last night it seemed only fitting to ask for a lift!!!
As the very formal service came to an end and the Bishops processed out of the cathedral Archbishop Onesphore trailed behind high fiving the children.
The 4 1/2 hour service was followed by cake and a drink. The cake had a firework on it and, after the cutting of the cake by Archbishop Onesphore he served the children.
Then Bishop Augustin offered us a lift back, what he actually said was “come we will go together”……. We found ourselves at a rather posh hotel eating lunch with 7 Bishops, an Archbishop and their respective wives!!!!
Today’s Bishop spotting completed our full house of Bishops for the eleven Diocese in Rwanda.
Tonight we dine with Archbishop Onesphore, Archbishop elect Laurent and their respective wives. A somewhat surreal day all in all.
We are all checked in for our flights home tomorrow as our journey comes to an end. Tonight’s prayer will be for warmer weather in the UK.
