The planners are quite dogmatic that a mission statement is a requirement for every undertaking, so I’ve added one to the sidebar.
Update: It’s been pointed out to me that the planners now say you also need a “vision.” A mission statement is without vitality nowadays if it doesn’t have a vision to go along with it. So I have a committee going through a five stage series of meetings to come up with one. There’s a lot of disagreement on the topic right now. Some members of the committee are fighting hard for: “The paramount aim of our church should be to educate and instill our faith in as many of its young people as possible.” Others are pushing: “The employees of the archdiocese do not believe that they are failing at running a Catholic school system. They think they are succeeding in achieving goals of their own.”
