(podcast) Hope for our Catholic Schools (Part III): Capital Models

Catholic Education is one of the Church’s primary responses to Christ’s mandate to “Go unto all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Sadly, across the country, Catholic schools are closing or are on the brink of closing. As dioceses, parishes and religious orders face difficult economic challenges and decisions, the tremendous treasure of Catholic education is put at risk. But, says O’Meara Ferguson president and founder Patrick O’Meara, the difficult time facing Catholic education is “not upon us at this moment – it’s been upon us for the last thirty years.”

In this podcast Patrick O’Meara discusses various models for funding the capital needs of our schools. Whether the capital need is a new roof, a new wing, or a brand new school building, Catholic schools have several models from which to choose as they seek to fund those needs. The image below is an illustration of the four primary models discussed by Patrick O’Meara in this podcast:
