Parish Mission Statement

Fr Zuhlsdorf has a very interesting post on Mission Statements that are written by Catholic Parishes. Now with the conclusion of a number of Parish Assemblies locally, I really wonder how many can actually come close to something like this:
This parish exists…
...to provide the sacraments when called upon through dignified observance of the law while preaching the full doctrine of the Catholic Church expressed with common sense and concrete action in such as way as to help you and your neighbor live your vocation and then enjoy the glorious reward of the Beatific Vision and avoid the anguished torments of everlasting hell.
