Rwanda: Kigali Catholic Churches Yet to Fully Communicate Genocide Apology

From All Africa-

The apology letter penned by the nine bishops constituting the Catholic Episcopal Conference of Rwanda - the Church's supreme organ in the country - over the role of some of the Church's clergymen and faithful in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi is yet to be read out in some of the churches as directed, The New Times can report.

The joint statement, signed by the nine bishops representing nine Catholic Church dioceses across the country, was released last week, with a directive that it be read out during mass last Sunday.

But some Christians who attended mass last Sunday have since told this newspaper the apology was not read out as expected, with many admitting they only heard about it in the media.
