The Catholic Messenger received five awards in this year’s Catholic Press Association Awards competition. Results were announced July 2 during the Catholic Media Conference, which took place virtually this year. The Catholic Press Association has nearly 225 publication members and 600 individual members in the United States and Canada.
The purpose of the Catholic Press Awards is to acknowledge the outstanding work of its publisher and communication members as they strive to further the mission of the church. On a daily basis they inform, inspire and educate readers keeping them connected to their faith, and telling the story of the Church. It is those contributions that are recognized through these awards.
