Our Mission & Vision



Partners in Mission, led by a team of dedicated professionals firmly rooted in the ministry of Catholic education and inspired by the Spirit, is committed to advancing Catholic education by:

  • Creating a community of strength for advancement, admission, communication, and alumni professionals engaged in this ministry so critical for the future vitality of our Catholic Church
  • Advancing excellence in best practices through educational programs and consulting services
  • Enhancing professional development through networking and mentoring opportunities


Partners in Mission strives to become in the eyes of our clients the premier and preferred professional services firm engaged in advancing the mission of Catholic education.

We seek to remain the firm of choice by offering comprehensive and affordable consulting, training, and professional development services that actively engage clients as Partners in Mission.

In addition to leading-edge best practices for strengthening leaders and communities, we offer our partners a robust network of colleagues at Catholic schools, dioceses, religious congregations and parishes throughout the United States.

Operating from a model of “state of the art” direct service to clients, we are committed to delivering excellence in all of our programs and services, and to guiding our partners in building excellence into their strategic planning and their organizations creating significant and sustainable growth for future generations.

Delbarton School's experience with Partners in Mission was outstanding in all respects.  The expertise and communication skills of our lead consultant, Kathleen Casey, and her colleague, Kevin Quinn, were a catalyst for creative, enthusiastic imagining about our school's preferred future by our Planning Retreat participants.  Kathleen and Kevin helped us effectively gather and analyze data from across our community to provide our Planning Retreat participants a solid foundation on which to erect our Plan for the next seven years.  I recommend Partners in Mission to any Catholic school seeking a highly mission-driven and technically excellent strategic planning consultancy.
