Help Prisoners Attend Mass in Rwanda

Project Leader:

Reverend Angelo Nisengwe

Give $10 for a prison uniform in Rwanda. Why? It’s an interesting story. The prisoners of Musanze prison in Rwanda have an additional barrier restricting their freedom. Of the 1600 prisoners, only 530 can attend Mass and recreational activities because when leaving the walls of the prison they must wear prison uniforms. The prison only has that many uniforms. Within the prison, inmates wear their own clothes. So that more prisoners can attend Mass if they wish and spend time outdoors, the Diocese of Ruhengeri built a chapel and outdoor space near the prison to serve this forgotten group. Fr. Angelo is now raising money for new prisoner uniforms so that more cannot use the new facilities. ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me’ (Mt 25:40) $10 buys one uniform for one prisoner.

Dear benefactors greeting in Christ, I'm very glad to thank you for the 5015 Dollars you fundrised for our prisoners. The Bishop is very happy as he showed it in the letter I sent you. The prisoners are also very thankful for all those who contributed to this project. Last Sunday, the Bishop went in the prison to celebrate the confirmation and explain to the prisoners about the project. With the mount we gave uniforms to 501 prisonners. They are very happy. The attendance in the mass in now high. Unfortunately, in our Country they don't agree to take photos of prisoners. It is why the photos I put on the post to show you the prisoners in mass don't show a lot of prisoners. You will see somre receiving confirmation and others on the stage. Thank you. Please continue helping us to help those in need. Father Angelo NISENGWE.

The Ruhengeri Diocese has a complex program for prisoners. But with these 5015 $, we will focus on the uniforms for prisoners. The prisoners like the mass and danses. But you can't attend those activities without uniform. Each sunday we celebrate the mass in the prison. The Bishop also goes there three times a year. Because of your help, the next pastoral visit of the Bishop in the prison will be the occasion to thank God and all those who fundrised for this project. About 500 prisoners will be in uniforms because off you. Thanks to God and all those who accept to help all his children in prison. On Christmas and Easter we give food to all the prisoners. Please help us to be able to continue all those programs for prisoners.
