While many Catholic schools throughout North Dakota and across the United States have recently closed, St. Joseph’s School is thriving. In fact, due to its overwhelming success, their parish community had added 7th and 8th grade classes and an all-day pre-kindergarten class to the school.
To accommodate the growing school needs, St. Joseph’s, under the direction of Walsh & Associates embarked on their Faith in Our Future campaign. The funds raised would be used to build St. Mary’s Chapel & Learning Resource Center connected to their school. The name would honor their heritage and historic St. Mary’s Academy. It would also honor our Blessed Mother, the wife and companion of their church’s patron, St. Joseph.
The generous amount raised was planned to be used to complete more minor but still needed church campus improvements. These would include new carpeting, new hearing impaired sound equipment, and new rectory windows.
“We tried to do it on our own. Big Mistake. With the help of Walsh & Associates we were able to go way over our goal. Thank you so much.”
– Peter Jerome, Campaign Vice Chair
“Our promotional and communication materials were first rate – beautifully done. Overall, the campaign service was super! First rate – our entire campaign was step-by-step as it was supposed to be. When we started at square one last fall this campaign looked like a daunting task. Our Walsh director did a fabulous job of motivating the group every step of the way. When we got to commitment weekend it was so impressive and gratifying to see it all come together.”
– Marilyn Thompson, Hospitality Chair
“The time line was well executed. I witnessed our parish coming together during this campaign as they prayed and worked together for the greater good!”
– Deacon Ken Severinson, Prayer Committee

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.

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.
