All Catholic Schools and Offices Across the Country to Be Closed on Thursday

The Catholic Education Unit of Ghana has announced that all Catholic schools and offices in the country will be closed on Thursday, 9th May, 2024, to observe Ascension Day.

The decision to observe the Ascension Day stems from the standing approval outlined in the Director General’s Letter No. AD/57, Ref. No. 1389/SF.1/Vol.130 dated February 8th, 1957.

It is a tradition that has been observed for many years and holds great significance for Catholics around the world.

They are tasked with organizing various religious activities and ceremonies to commemorate the Ascension of Jesus Christ.

As a result of this directive, all Catholic schools across the country will be on holiday.
