St Mary of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church

Campaign Purpose

St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception is the oldest Catholic Church in Rock Island County. For 170 years the parish has been ministering to the community’s needs, welcoming immigrants and newcomers, and inviting all to grow together in Christ as a family of faith. Their facilities, including their beautiful, historic worship space, however, needed maintenance and renovations to serve their parish’s needs into the future.

In service with Walsh & Associates, St. Mary’s endeavored to undertake a capital campaign to preserve, renovate, reinvigorate, and restore their church buildings. Their Honoring Our Past, Securing Our Future campaign would celebrate their history, blending modern and traditional to create a welcoming, appealing environment. All their plans would be toward a goal of drawing people in and having their church survive and joyfully thrive for many more years. St. Mary’s plans were generously supported by their membership who raised 2.81 times their annual giving in the campaign.

Church Capital Campaign Check


“The organizational and orientation materials were excellent. The case statement, logo and theme fit our parish well. The promotional materials were the best part of the campaign. I am confident we would not have been as successful if we didn’t use Walsh’s services.”
– Christopher Versluis, Advanced Gifts Chair

“The campaign was a good experience and we accomplished more with the help of Walsh than we could have on our own.”
– Rev. Luke Spannagel, Pastor

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.
