Diocese of Lake Charles
The Diocese of Lake Charles, in southwest Louisiana, was facing problems common to Catholic dioceses that focus on helping the needy: an underfunded priest pension account, a cathedral in need of restoration and many parish buildings needing similar work. Given the diocese’s tight annual budget, leadership knew that a capital campaign – the first ever for the diocese – would be necessary. The Steier Group designed a customized campaign, named Return to the Lord, tailored to Catholics in this unique region. The extra effort to make the campaign a “feel-good” experience paid off in results that exceeded even the most optimistic projection.
“While this capital campaign is the first of its sort that this diocese has conducted, as a pastor for many years, I had numerous experiences with similar endeavors assisted by stewardship consulting firms. Steier Group stands with the best and, in this particular case, excelled and exceeded my expectations.”
– Glen John Provost, Bishop of Lake Charles, Diocese of Lake Charles
