Parish Priest

From the Desk of the Parish Priest

You are most welcome to Our Lady of Perpetual Light Catholic Chaplaincy at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, in Osun State, South Western part of Nigeria.
The Chaplaincy is a one-Church Parish that caters for the Pastoral needs of over 500 students and 200 others in approximately 90 families. It is indeed a family Church where everyone feels at home and actively participates in the parish life. As would be expected, the Chaplaincy is students-focused since its establishment with the University in 1962. Nevertheless, it runs as a full parish and everyone makes effort to receive adequate spiritual nourishment. God has indeed been faithful and the people of God have been very cooperative and supportive to ensure that we grow together in the Faith.
