In all its endeavors, the Catholic University Chaplaincy seeks to build on the principle of highlighting and giving expression to the transcendent dimension of human life.
In keeping with its mission, CUCG chaplaincy organizes daily masses, weekend retreats, seminars/conferences and other religious activities including counseling and spiritual directors to students and staff of the university.

(Psalm 44 )
The Catholic University of Ghana enters its tenth academic year (since its accreditation in December 2002 and the official opening in March 2003, with its second admissions in November the same year). The transition to the new site at Fiapre marked a tremendous improvement in terms of population increase and the building of the first phase of physical structures, etc. Yet a lot more is expected to meet the aspirations and wishes of the founding fathers, the administrators, the staff and students as well as friends of the Catholic University. What should we expect in the years to come? How should we advance in the realization of our vision as an ecclesial institution? These and many other questions prompt the Chaplaincy to propose a reflection based on a celebration that coincides with the opening of our academic year, that is, the Feast of Mary’s Assumption.
The author is of the view that our success depends largely on the faith and trust with which we take off and pursue our programmes – academic, administrative, developmental, religious or whatever – with the view to achieving greater success as a united body. We need to be committed to our shared mission of “inculcating high moral standards and imparting gospel values to students in their integral formation in the course of their university education” (Introductory Brochure, p.5). We face big challenges: “inadequate logistics, poor access road to campus, inadequate financial resources” (Documentary on CUCG) and lack of appropriate place for worship. Yet there is greater hope of success, if we can trust and hope as Mary the Mother of Christ did: she responded to the Angelic invitation and now invites us to tread the path of humility, obedience and dedicated service through the mystery of her Assumption.
