Holy Spirit Catholic Church
Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Sacramento, embarked on their Better Together, Holy Spirit Parish and School campaign to build a STEM center at their school. Through the support of their members, they exceeded their goal toward their plans to create a state-of-the-art science lab in a new 2,600 square foot addition.
The active and multi-cultural parish of Holy Spirit desired to make their facilities welcoming, accessible, secure, and designed to meet their current and future needs. In partnership with Walsh & Associates they conducted a Feasibility & Planning Study to make plans and determine how to raise the funds they would need. Their One in the Spirit/ Juntos en un Espíritu campaign was enthusiastically and positively received by their membership. They exceeding their goal and raised almost four times their annual giving. The funds will be used to improve accessibility throughout their campus, improve school security, and move forward with the construction of a new gymnasium. They also have plans to convert their old gym into a Parish Hall with a new kitchen and added space for their school.
“Our campaign director and assistant were passionate and hard-working.”
– Moira Topp, Advanced Gifts Co-Chair
“The overall structure of the campaign was excellent”
– Annette Scarlato, Hospitality Co-Chair
“Before embarking on this campaign, I would say 90% of the parishioners I spoke with did not believe it would be possible to make our goal given the advanced age of the parish population and the large influx of immigrants over the years. Your system has proven that if you follow the system that has worked hundreds of times at other churches around the country and if you have a little faith, miracles can happen.”
– Stephen Day, Creative Giving Chair
“The process was good and it worked well! I liked that it was very focused for twelve weeks.”
– Rev. Msgr. Paul Koetter
