Osu Deanery Youth Council
The Osu Deanery Youth Council was formed after the re-demarcation of deaneries in the Archdiocese of Accra in December, 2009 by a decree from the Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, Most Rev. Charles Gabriel Palmer-Buckle. The first meeting of the deanery was held in February, 2010 at the Holy Spirit Cathedral. From the meeting an interim executive committee was appointed to steer the affairs of the newly created council under the guidance of the then Youth Chaplains, Rev. Fr. Joseph Mensah and Rev. Fr. John Neumann Tettehfio.
