Who We Are
The Conference of Major Superiors of Religious, Ghana made up of both men and women leaders of the Catholic Religious Congregations in Ghana was established on 23 August 2013 when Rome recognized the group as a body in the church in Ghana. Before then, there were two separate Conferences of women and men.
It is to promote deeper collaboration between the leaders of the congregations in Ghana so that no superior will feel isolated in her/his ministry. Opportunities are therefore given through communication, workshops, and meetings to support the ministry of leadership in the face of current challenges.
The Conference convenes twice in the year - March and October. Presently, the Conference is composed of about seventy (70) members of both men and women religious.
The membership of the Conference while expressing the diversity of charisms and cultures promotes the common identity of those who follow Christ in the Apostolic Religious Life to proclaim the Kingdom.
The CMSG has a relationship with the Catholic Bishops Conference of Ghana.
Since formation is the key to the growth of religious life, the Conference has taken initiatives in supporting its subsidiary groups/institutions – ICF, NARF, JPIC ARUG, etc. for the promotion and development of formation.
Our vision is to be a vibrant, formidable and prophetic Catholic Missionary body in Ghana collaboratively responding to the signs of the times through sustainable programs towards the positive transformation of society.
Our mission is to effectively strengthen Catholic Religious Institutes in Ghana and to foster their missionary engagements through collaboration with relevant stakeholders towards the integral development of the human person (integral: advocacy, spiritual, education, health and well-being of persons).
