St. Cecelia’s has been blessed with a growing and ethnically diverse community and they need to meet the spiritual and temporal needs of all their parishioners. They, therefore, must provide multi-lingual programs in Spanish, Vietnamese, and English. This means they desperately lack enough meeting rooms and spaces to provide this tripling of ministries.
The parish hired Walsh & Associates to perform a Feasibility & Planning Study to evaluate a response to a proposed capital campaign. They then embarked on their Living Our Faith, Building Our Future campaign to fund solutions to their meeting and office space needs. Their plans include two new buildings which will be a meeting and an education center. The existing Parish Hall offices would then be remodeled into a youth center, a larger kitchen, and new restrooms.
St. Cecelia’s Parish supports over 40 ministries—times three (Spanish, Vietnamese, and English). Their generous donors contributed 3.68 times the church’s annual giving in support of their campaign plans.

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.
