St. Michael Catholic Church was beautifully designed as a reverential space in which to gather together in celebration and worship. But, its interior and furnishings were showing the toll of its many years of service to its faith community. The roof had been recently replaced and it was time to renovate the interior. Time to maintain and restore the church to its full beauty and potential.
Walsh & Associates’ campaign director worked with St. Michael’s to implement their Pride in Our Past, Faith in Our Future campaign. It included extensive plans to repair and renovate their church building interior. Infrastructure, like HVAC and lighting, would be updated. Extensive worship space renovations would be done included repositioning the sanctuary, shrines, and choir. And, their beautiful stained-glass windows would be repaired to their full glory. The community responded with enthusiastic generosity, exceeding their campaign goal.
“Walsh’s work ethic, energy, professionalism, organization, and motivational skills made our campaign the success that it was. The campaign Walsh helped us conduct was a big boost to this parish in all the ways Michael Walsh said it would be!” – Rev. John Cotter, Pastor
“The promotional and communications materials were high quality and the DVD was outstanding! Our director from Walsh was professional, courteous and able to put people at ease. He was excellent at presentations, answering questions and keeping everyone on track. I think Walsh provided an exceptional service to our church, and I am happy with our choice.”
– Dean & Margie Newman, Community Gifts Chairs
“This is the first capital campaign we have worked on. Our director from Walsh was most helpful, professional, informative, and fun to work with. I truly believe we would not have raised the money without your firm’s help. Many thanks to you and our consultant.”
– Karen & Dale Drexler, Hospitality Committee

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.
