Spiritus Veritatis-The Spirit of Truth

Our History

Spiritan University College started as an Institute of philosophy to give the first stage of priestly and missionary formation uniquely to candidates of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit. It was opened on 17th December, 1990 and the foundation stone was laid by Very Rev. Fr. Pierre Haas, C.S.Sp blessed by the Most Rev. Peter Kwasi Sarpong.

In 1997, an initial two year programme was broadened to cover three years leading to the award of a Diploma in Philosophy and Religious Studies. In 2002, the proprietors decided to raise the academic standard to enable graduates to meet the intellectual challenges of the society of the day. Added to this, the proprietors saw the need to bring the benefits of Catholic and Spiritan education to the youth of Ghana and Africa by opening the doors of the College to the wider public.
