"Building From Our Belief" Renovation Information

Intro:

Our parish has spent long months (years!) assessing, planning, and fundraising for a major renovation of our worship and gathering spaces. We are grateful and proud to announce that we have raised about $3.5 million in promised funds, and are on our way to collecting those funds. Thank you to all of our generous donors and dedicated volunteers who have made this possible! Some of the work on the the exterior of the church and the steeple has already been done, now that the funds have been accumulating. Soon we hope to have larger contracts out to bid, and more plans in place for the main part of the renovation.

If you would like to learn more about our work so far, our needs, plans, and financials, see the Building From Our Belief website.

There is still time to be a part of this project! If you are interested in giving to our cause or want to volunteer your time, please contact the parish office at 920-887-2082 or welzk@stkatharinedrexelbd.org.

 

Feasibility Study

In an effort to perform our pre-renovation due diligence, our fundraising committee hired a consultant to conduct a feasibility study. The intent of this study was to aid determining how much money we, as a parish community, were capable of raising. We contacted, interviewed and checked the references of three professional Catholic fundraising firms. We felt the approach to fundraising followed by Walsh and Associates most closely aligned with the values of our parish community. A selection of supportive parishioners were contacted and asked to take part in confidential interviews with a representative from the firm. The names of those interviewed will remain confidential unless they personally choose to share their involvement. We invite you to review the study result by clicking the link below.
