St. Ursula Parish Mission Statement
It is important for any company or organization to have a Mission Statement. This one or two sentence statement should simply define the overall goal of a company or organization as well as give a broad idea of how you are going to obtain your goal. Churches are not left out of achieving a Mission Statement to define their ultimate goal and allowing for people inside and out of their church community to understand what they are trying to achieve in one broad statement. At St. Ursula, we feel it is important for us to have a Mission Statement. We have had one in the past, but as we continue on a different path and change our goals, Mission Statements need to be refined.
The Pastoral Council for the last three meetings has been gathering statements from other
churches, as well as ideas from parishioners and from within the Council. We have narrowed them down to the three Mission Statements listed below. Because we feel that this is a Parish decision as a whole and not the decision of one committee, we are sending the three statements out to a vote.
