Welcome to the official website of Arua Diocese. After having celebrated the Centenary of Christian Faith in our Diocese in 2012, we aspire to respond to Jesus' invitation by becoming a Missionary Diocese in the next one hundred years. Every baptized Christian is an evangelizer, a missionary as Jesus tells His disciples "... go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Mt. 28:19).
"We aspire to respond to Jesus' invitation by becoming a missionary Diocese in the next one hundred years. Every baptized Christian is an evangelizer, a missionary..."
