This coming Sunday, we welcome Kay Day, a mission co-worker in Rwanda to the pulpit as we celebrate Rwanda Partnership Sunday with our Presbyterian sisters and brothers in Gitarama Presbytery in Rwanda.
This is an important event in the life of our church as it marks a more than ten-year relationship with our sister church Nyarubuye Mpushi Church in Rwanda (Africa). More information about the history of our partnership is available in this week’s Spotlight on Ministry – Mission: Rwanda.
Kay Day has served at the Protestant Institute of Arts and Sciences (PIASS) in Rwanda since 2013 where she prepares men and women for pastoral ministry by teaching English and practical theology.
The Protestant Institute of Arts and Sciences (PIASS) is supported by five Protestant denominations, including the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s Rwandan mission partner, the Presbyterian Church of Rwanda. The school was established in 2010, but its roots go back to the founding of the School of Theology of Butare years earlier. PIASS trains students in divinity, education, and community development. The school strives to produce graduates who will contribute to Rwanda’s spiritual, intellectual, and socio-economic life. PIASS seeks students who are called to be moral pillars of reconciliation, mutual respect, and societal development. As a lecturer in English and practical theology, Kay Day prepares students for pastoral ministry.
The above information is from the Presbyterian Mission Agency where you also will find more information about Kay Day’s ministry, including letters she has written.
We hope you will join us on Sunday, including for the reception following worship where you will have the opportunity to meet Kay in the Chalice Room, which will be decorated with items representative of Rwanda.
