Our Mission

We are the Catholic Diocese of Koforidua who brings Christ to all people in the diocese by preaching the word of God, administering the sacraments and by providing quality education, health, humanitarian and other social services.

Our Vision

"Evangelizing through self reliance"
The vision translated into the three local languages used in the diocese, Akan, Ewe and Krobo, shall be disseminated throughout the diocese to galvanize, efforts of all in the diocese towards this common vision.


The Grotto was initiated by Feliza Diaz in May 2016 in honour of her late husband Angel Diaz. Through the support of Parishioners of Santa Barbara and other local and foreign Benefactors, it was completed. It has a serene environment that can contain large numbers of groups and societies for their spiritual needs.

On August 15, 2022, Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary, hundreds of Parishioners celebrated the 1st Assumption Mass at the Grotto.
