The vision of the Catholic Diocese of Gikongoro is that of a Church light of hearts at home, carried by us, in the service of every man and all man.


The mission of the Diocese is specified by its statutes: evangelization and human promotion. It was fixed by Jesus himself: “All power has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you every day until the end of the world “(Matthew 28: 18-20)

Concretely, this means that in all its interventions, the Diocese will systematically avoid acting as a simple non-governmental organization, charity or development. The motive and the driving force of all his actions will be the announcement of the Good News and the human promotion. All the analyzes and all the strategic choices to make will be constantly turned towards this saving horizon. To leave the mission that the Lord has assigned to His Church is to act without Him or against Him.

OUR WORK IS DRIVEN BY OUR VALUES: Evangelization and human promotion
