St Katherine Drexel Catholic Church
The members of St. Katharine Drexel Parish exceeded the goal of their Building From Our Belief – A Place to Gather & Grow capital campaign with the support of Walsh & Associates. Their efforts raised enough funds to improve accessibility, enhance their worship space, and expand their facilities without debt.
Their new 10,000 square foot addition will house a Eucharistic Chapel, a larger Narthex and Gathering Space, a warming kitchen, multi-purpose space, new restrooms, a wheelchair lift, and storage. Worship space enhancements will include everything from reconfiguring the altar, pews, traffic flow, and choir and shrine areas to new technology tools and lighting, and a new altar, ambo, and baptismal font.
“Stewardship is paramount to the success of a major capital campaign, and Walsh’s approach touched on every single stewardship pillar! Under your guidance, we were able to build ownership and excitement into our parishioners, from the youngest to the oldest and almost everyone in between. It was a pleasure to watch the transformation from skeptic to supporter in many cases, and I was so excited to announce that we were able to raise more than our challenge goal! This would not have been possible without our consultant’s guidance and skill in keeping us focused. I would not hesitate to contract your services in the future, and strongly recommend Walsh for any parish preparing to launch a capital 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.
