Please Enjoy Your Stay...

We offer a warm and trusting welcome to all, a "home away from home" where students, faculty, and staff can always find a listening ear and an understanding heart. Besides fulfilling our own particualar responsibilities and providing counsel and spiritual direction upon request, we also live in student residences, worship in the community, teach, organize support groups, respond to emergencies, and serve on university committees and as academic advisors. In so doing we hope to heighten the community’s awareness of God at work in our midst and to dispose that same community to allow God’s Spirit to enliven us and bring to fruition our shared goals. Have fun and surf through our website. We hope to provide you with every information that you need to know about CSSUPM.

History Goes On...

And so the School of Agriculture was upgraded to Agriculture College of Malaya (ACM) in 1942 and later Universiti Pertanian Malaysia (UPM) was established in 1971. When UPM started, the chapel was under the care of a group called Catholic Students Society. Come 1974, this group was fully recognized as the Catholic Students' Society of UPM (CSSUPM).

Since then, the CSSUPM members had been committed in maintaining this petite chapel. Among the major events that occured throughout the chapel's existance were the major renovation done in the 1970s to improve the chapel's condition and the installation of electricity in 1985. The CSSUPM Alumni's even mastermind in the landscaping of the chapel's surrounding in 1997, and thanks to a financial aid by His Grace the Archbishop Soter Fernandez, CSSUPM managed to install new appliances and new sound system.

Without the support from various parties such as the Archbishops (the late Archbishop Emeritus Tan Sri Dominic Vendragon and Archbishop Anthony Soter Fernandez), priests and chaplains, neighbouring churches and campuses, the society's advisors, dedicated CSSUPM members (past and present), generous Catholics.. this chapel would not have existed and standing tall until this day. We would like to take this oppurtunity to thank everyone for your contributions
