The 72 pilgrims chose Muyaga because it was the first parish in Burundi, founded in 1898 by European missionaries. The first Burundian catechists come from there.
The theme that the parish priest proposed to pilgrims for prayer and meditation was “Let’s go up to the mountain of teaching”, with reference to the Gospel of Matthew 5: 1-12.
