Sacred Heart’s campus was strategically designed to build a strong community of faith through worship, education, stewardship, Christian service, and evangelization in order to share God’s love for all people. Since 2007 they had built a new church, a new school, and a new parish hall. The decision to build them at one time was made so that they could take advantage of lower interest rates as well as lower construction costs. They held two earlier campaigns, led by Walsh & Associates. It was time for a third campaign to address their debt. They knew that lingering debt would jeopardize their parish’s growth. With the continuing generosity of their parishioners, they would be able to reduce their debt and continue to grow their ministries.
The Forward in Faith campaign was an intensive effort to raise the funds to reduce and ultimately retire their building loan debt and fulfill their promise to live their faith. “We have built the facilities to do God’s work. Now, we are being called to focus on paying off the debt.”
“Our parish has just completed its second campaign using Walsh and Associates. The campaign was successful. In large credit due to the organization, campaign director, and materials provided by Walsh and Associates…I would recommend Walsh and Associates for parishes and institutions that are considering campaigns for the first time or those initiating campaigns after multiple experiences like ourselves.”
– Fr. Fred Nijem
“Our campaign was very successful, and we met our goal. The materials and methodology supplied by Walsh & Associates were extremely well developed and were instrumental in enabling us to have such a successful outcome. Having the expertise and experience of Walsh & Associates enabled us to be so successful. We couldn’t have achieved this result without their input, professionalism and guidance. ”

Helping Churches Reach New Heights in their Capital Campaigns
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.
