Our Lady of Wisdom Catholic Church and Student Center
Our Lady of Wisdom Catholic Church and Student Center has served the University of Louisiana at Lafayette since 1923. Yet in recent years, even though 60 percent of UL students were identifying themselves as Catholic, attendance at Mass was waning. Under a new pastor, an emphasis on New Evangelization and on FOCUS spurred rapid growth. Within five years, the Ragin’ Cajun Catholics had outgrown their facilities. With that in mind, the community partnered with the Steier Group in a capital campaign called Wisdom for Every Generation. The campaign started strong with a lead gift from the Diocese of Lafayette. Building on that momentum, Our Lady of Wisdom raised more than $3 million toward a new sanctuary and student center.
A Customized Approach
We founded our firm on the belief that the best capital campaign is one that is customized and executed by one team, under one roof. When you hire the Steier Group, you eliminate the need to contract with additional vendors for services like copywriting, graphic design, grant writing, video production, website development or wealth screening. We reject the one-size-fits-all approach to fundraising and embrace every opportunity to design a capital campaign plan that will maximize our client’s fundraising potential.View all services offered
