Bill Heubsch in his Book Dreams & Visions says that instead of trying to think up a unique mission statement, we should simply adopt the mission we share with the whole church:
  • To help people deepen their communion with Christ by offering them opportunities at the parish which give rise to the possibility of ever more intimacy with him,
    and
    to help people grow & sustain the excitement of that conversion within their parish, through our sacramental life and intentional formation opportunities
    which lead to works of justice & charity, not on the part of the parish as a whole, but on the part of individual believers gathered in Christ’s name
    and which also lead to
    a life of daily prayer and to the desire on the part of believers to invite
    others to deeper communion as well, which then begins this circle again.
