Sfânta '''[[Arhiepiscopie]] de Accra''' is a [[eparhie]] under the [[jurisdicție]] of the Greek Orthodox [[Church of Alexandria|Patriarchate of Alexandria]] and All Africa. Its territory includes the [[parish]]es and missions located in the nations of [[Ghana]], Ivory Coast, Liberia, [[Sierra Leone]], Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, and Gambia.
The missionary origins of the archdiocese date from the establishment of the Holy Metropolis of Accra and West Africa on [[January 23]], 1959.[[http://www.patriarchateofalexandria.com/index.php?module=news&action=list&catid=001]] The archdiocese was initially established as the '''Diocese of Ghana''' by a Patriarchal and Synodal decree in 1997.
