At the beginning of 2018, Arua Diocese initiated a professional approach to advance its desired future of evangelization and charity for all, by adopting astrategic plan (2018-2021). The strategic planning process commenced with a four-day retreat of the Diocesan Administration, Heads of Departments and Consultors who laid the framework for thestrategic plan. The retreat was succeeded by a series of curia meetings and departmental sessions to ensure inclusiveness in drawing departmental strategic objectives and action points that in general provided direction for the entire Diocese.
The Strategic Plan gave rise to the first Vision and Mission Statement, and the first all-inclusive set of Core Valuesfor Arua Diocese. The Diocese contracted a consultant to provide professional guidance through the entire strategic planning process. The Arua Diocese Strategic Planwas launched on May 31, 2018 during the closure of the Diocesan Pastoral Council (DPC) summit at Christus Center Arua.
