VOCATION OFFICE - CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF HO

The history of Ho Diocese takes its origins from the Vicariate of Dahomey (present-day Benin), and the Vicariate of the Gold Coat, part of which became the Diocese of Keta. Keta Diocese in turn became the Diocese of Keta-Ho and Ho became the Episcopal See of Keta-Ho Diocese. And in our times on the 19th day of December 1994, Keta-Ho Diocese (Co-terminus with the Volta Region) was divided into three Dioceses with Ho Diocese in the Center, Jasikan Diocese in the north of Ho Diocese and Keta-Akatsi Diocese in the South, all in the Volta Region of Ghana.
