Glenmary Challenge Receives 2013 Catholic Press Association Award

Posted: 6/25/2013

Catholic Press Association Awards, 2013 Glenmary Challenge, the quarterly magazine of Glenmary Home Missioners, received a major award at the Catholic Press Association's 2013 annual convention held June 19-21 in Denver, Colo.

The publication was honored with a third-place award for "General Excellence" in the mission-magazine category.

Judges called the magazine "readable, thoughtful, and well-conceived."

They also commented that "the challenge for Glenmary is to bring to life the vitality of home missions to Catholics more accustomed to the exotic foreign missions. Glenmary Challenge is a well-designed, large-format magazine that brings to life its work in states where Catholics are a tiny minority. A particularly insightful article (page 15, Autumn 2012) traces the history of Glenmary Research Center and its creation of U.S. maps showing denominational demographic concentration."

The Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada strives to build and strengthen the value and worth of the Catholic press by facilitating the professional, economic and spiritual growth of its members.
