Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Church

Church Exterior - Capital Church Campaign Success Stories

Campaign Purpose

The Duluth Diocese combined Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Alice, and St. Christopher into one Our Lady of the Lakes Parish. In coordination with the Diocesan Plan, the Bishop, and the three churchs’ leaders, many options were explored as to how one priest could best serve the new parish’s worship, education, and fellowship needs. It was determined to build a new church to serve the southern half of the parish. Updating the Pine River church facilities would allow it to continue to serve the parish’s northern half. Walsh & Associates worked with the parish leadership to conduct a Feasibility & Planning study. They then directed the One Faith, One Family, One Future capital campaign. Despite the difficulty of transitioning from three beloved parish facilities to two, the community rallied in support of the plan. They exceeded their goal and raised 4.28 times annual giving.

Our mission is to be great stewards, to live up to the Parable of Talents and to bring out the best in those we serve. Our consistent and proven-to-be-successful approach to directing church capital campaigns helps assure this. We just work with churches, only do capital campaigns and ground them in prayer, scripture and sound stewardship teachings. Then we combine this with practical, proven-to-be-most-productive operating methods. This not only assures you of getting the best results and best return on your capital campaign investment financially, but also, that your church will grow spiritually and in community and will be more equipped and excited than ever about doing God’s will through the works of your church.
