St John the Evangelist Catholic Church
It is often said that one of the most important parts of the Catholic Church is the parish. Why? Because the Parish influences people’s lives. It is in the parish setting where we receive the Body and Blood of Christ. It is where we listen to the word of God proclaimed and find forgiveness of our sins in Reconciliation. It is also where we seek communal support and live our faith. St. John’s parish is a living, breathing entity because God interacts with His people there.
Embarking on their Sharing Our Faith, Securing Our Future capital campaign, St. John’s planned to improve and expand their facilities. And the community responded by raising 3.6 times their annual giving!
The campaign funds raised will go toward the church’s ambitious plans – building a three level, 30,000 sq. foot parish Activity Center connected to their church. This new area will provide permanent, up-to-date, multi-use meeting and storage space for their pre-school, religious education, and adult ministries.
“Our campaign consultant was a perfect match for our parish. Her organization and people skills allowed for the process to flow smoothly. Our director oversaw all meetings, conducted trainings, assisted in developing marketing materials and so much more. She easily connected with committee members and parishioners, was authentic in showing care and concern for the campaign, and utilized her past campaign experience to keep us on track. She was professional, approachable, and always smiling.
From the first visit to the completion of the campaign, the Walsh methods proved successful and the associated software was detailed and easy to use. We highly recommend Walsh & Associates to other churches who are starting a building 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.
