Imagine yourself running for your life as a five year old, with your seven year old brother and your mother carrying a nine month old baby! Running for miles from your home in Burundi, across the Tanzanian border to a refugee camp. Spending your entire boyhood from the age of 5 to 17 years in that refugee camp! This was the experience of Fr Erick Niyiragira cp. As a newly arrived refugee and year nine student at Christian Brothers College (Adelaide), Erick Niyiragira had one thing on his mind. He wanted to be a priest. Erick Niyiragira was ordained a Passionist priest on June 1st 2016 and is currently the administrator of St Brigid’s Parish Marrickville.

There follows another period of input. The there is another period of reflection. You may stay in the hall, wander in the grounds or find a spot to sit in the sum. We try to maintain the silence. Finally, we gather for conversation with our presenter and each other.
