Sacred Heart’s history as a parish goes back over a century. It is a place of peace and love. It is full of faith-filled parishioners ready and willing to do God’s will and works. To plan for the future they knew they needed to address their aged and failing school building that housed the vast majority of their parish activities. The building no longer met the ever changing needs of their faith family.
To overcome this problem, the pastoral and finance councils charged a group with the planning and design of a new space to replace the school building. They also consulted with an architect and contractor in the parish. All worked tirelessly to design an efficient building to address the needs of the whole parish body and prepare it for generations to come.
Under guidance from Walsh & Associates, the parish set a challenge goal of $800,000. In combination with funds from their education endowment, this amount would enable the completion of their entire project as planned without debt.
The community of Sacred Heart of Jesus offered overwhelming support for their Our Time, Our Faith, Our Future campaign to build a new education and parish center. They surpassed their challenge goal and generously raised almost eight times annual offertory!
“Walsh & Associates is extremely knowledgeable in what it takes to conduct a professional and successful capital campaign. Their process walks those involved through every phase of the campaign. Sacred Heart was able to exceed its original stretch goal. I highly recommend Walsh because of their professionalism and knowledge in how they go about conducting such a campaign.”

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.
