Who We Are

We are a strong, vibrant and alive catholic community of the College of Medicine (CMUL) and Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH). We are diverse individuals with Jesus at the centre of our life as a body, ready to serve and offer care in different spheres of life. Ours is a community of faith, service and education with men and women of different cultures and backgrounds coming together in response to God, and in an unending encounter with Jesus Christ.
St. Ignatius of Loyola

The Jesuits

The chaplaincy has been run by the Jesuits since 19.. With the North-West African provincial headquarters housing a community of Jesuits being just about 20 minutes drive away from the university teaching hospital, the chaplaincy members have always had a strong friendship with the Jesuits, attending each others’ events and accompanying one another on life’s journey. Thus, the Jesuit formation and spirituality of finding God in all things is one which continues to influence and guide the faith of the chaplaincy community.

What We Do

We provide a strong spiritual and pastoral support to members of the university and the community at large.
Patients and families at the hospital in need of pastoral care, attention and reception of sacraments are also duly attended to whenever they call, and visited as part of a routine.
Our service is to the Lord and the people in a variety of contexts, with a mission of healing of mind, body and spirit, while spreading the gospel in various forms to everyone we encounter.
