Catholic Messenger receives national awards

This was one of three front pages submitted in an entry for which The Catholic Messenger won a Catholic Press Assocation award.

Two Catholic Press Association awards have been presented to The Catholic Messenger following the 2012 Catholic Media Convention in Indianapolis.
The Catholic Messenger received third place for best front page (broadsheet division) and an honorable mention in the mid-sized newspaper division for a story Barb Arland-Fye wrote about Bishop Martin Amos celebrating 10 years as a bishop. The front-page award recognized the work of Catholic Messenger staffers Celine Klosterman, Anne Marie Amacher and Barb Arland-Fye. This is the second year in a row that The Catholic Messenger has received a third-place award for best front page.
Award winners were announced June 22 at the convention in Indianapolis. The contest is a project of the Catholic Press Association (CPA) of the United States and Canada, which represents more than 600 member organizations. Member organizations include more than 130 diocesan newspapers competing in one of three divisions based on circulation: small, 1-17,000; mid-sized, 17,001-40,000; and large, 40,001+. The Catholic Messenger is in the mid-sized division. Best front page is judged on newspaper format — broadsheet or tabloid — rather than circulation size.
Also contributing to The Catholic Messenger’s success are staff members Nancy Hamerlinck, Tony Forlini, Kathy Weiss and volunteer proofreader Father Tom Stratman.
