UG’s Mensah Sarbah Hall has climaxed the celebration of its 60th anniversary with a Thanksgiving Service held on Sunday, 18th February 2024.

Rev. Fr. Michael Mensah, from the Department for the Study of Religions, gave the day’s sermon, choosing his reflection from the Bible verse 2 Samuel 7:1-16. The passage speaks about King David’s desire to build a house for God and God’s promise to establish David’s house as an everlasting dynasty. He explained that his reason for choosing the passage was to afford the congregation the opportunity to reflect on the Hall, not just as a residential facility for students, but also as a symbol of both what they are called to do as tutors or fellows and what the students are called to become.
