Serving Those Who Serve
Borromeo Project Inc. is a non-profit corporation designed to be an intentional and practical way to aid the Church in strengthening her clergy and religious as they strive to be good stewards in the responsibilities entrusted to them.
In a fully obedient response to the Gospel and the Magisterium, the Borromeo Project team takes the proven best practices of the secular world and in consultation adapts, educates and provides the services needed to support those responsible for serving the Church as leaders; in these times marked by increasingly scarce resources and ever-changing rules, expectations, and structures, the assistance of a team of experts can free pastors for the primary duties of their vocation.
The Borromeo Project recognizes the “managerial” role of the priest as implicit in his vocational responsibilities and seeks to introduce new approaches and methodologies, new managerial and organizational techniques, for identifying, solving and even preventing crises, as well as reflects on the place of the priest’s managerial responsibilities within his call as to live as shepherd and servant.
Just as the philosophical, theological, spiritual, and pastoral formation of seminary are essential for the apostolic ministries of bishops, priests and religious, so too do these servant leaders need to understand and navigate the range of governance issues and challenges they will face throughout their ministry in their diocese, parish, or religious community. Tasks such as overseeing large operating budgets, eradicating significant debt, the transparent management of financial resources, the good organization of human resources, effective communication and crisis management, and long-range planning are skills
rarely mentioned in seminary or the novitiate. But can their importance for today’s clergy and religious be doubted?
At the Borromeo Project, while serving as good stewards, we help you to capitalize on your strengths to make your best choices.
Inspired by the wisdom of St Charles Borromeo, himself a faithful pastor who despite the resistance began many successful reforms in the Church centered on the liturgy, the life, training and discipline of clergy as well as the training of the laity in the ways of faith, the Borromeo Project offers tailor made services to Bishops, Pastors, Religious Superiors and key people for the revival, reform and renewal of the Church.
Our coaching, financial, canonical and spiritual services, helps them identifying and resolving challenges that arise in their ministry as shepherds and leaders of the local Church as well as assist them to work effectively with their own collaborators and teams by developing best practices and strategies for proactively assessing and averting potential conflicts.
Our personalized, secure and faithful services are provided by a highly specialized and confidential team of experts in a variety of executive best practices, such as communication, strategic development, crisis management, financial modeling and reporting, forensic analysis, asset protection and project affordability, operations and risk management, staffing and organization planning.

The Borromeo Project team of experts offers confidential and professional consultation on canonical matters and the proper and just application of the law of the Roman Catholic Church.

The desire and calling to help clergy has always been in Mario Enzler’s heart. Since his time serving Pope Saint John Paul II as a Swiss Guard followed by a successful career in international banking, to establishing a Classical Education school in New Hampshire, teaching at the Catholic University of America and at the University of St. Thomas, and conducting workshops for Clergy and Religious Sisters all over the world, Mario Enzler continually aims at living out his vocation and positively impacting the lives of those he encounters.
