History of the Archdiocese

Most great things have humble beginnings. Such is the history of the Metropolitan Catholic  Archdiocese of Accra. On 31 January 1893, Fathers Otto Hilberer and Eugene Raess arrived in Accra to found Catholicism in the capital city.In 1894, a devastating yellow fever epidemic swept through the coastal towns of Ghana, then Gold Coast, and dealt a great blow to both the local people and the missionary priests. In all 7 out of 10 missionary Fathers died as a result of this epidemic. It was as if Satan himself was waging war against the establishment of the Kingdom of God in Accra. For about 30 years Accra was to remain without a resident priest.

Services in Accra were held in rented houses. Among the many houses used for worship were those of one Miss Quaye and Mr Andoh. The mother Church of the Archdiocese of Accra is the Sacred Heart Church.
