America Magazine Wins Big at the Catholic Press Association Awards

July 1, 2013 — America Magazine hauled home a number of trophies at the annual Catholic Press Association (CPA) awards on June 21 in Denver. Nominated in 12 categories, the Jesuit magazine took first place in eight of them.

“The results are a testament to our terrific editorial team and to Jesuit Father Drew Christiansen’s fine leadership in 2012,” said Jesuit Father Matt Malone, America’s editor-in-chief, who succeeded Fr. Christiansen in October 2012.

America won first place awards for the following magazine categories:

  • Best essay
  • Best coverage of religious liberty issues
  • Best coverage of the election and forming conscience
  • Best coverage of the 50th anniversary of Vatican II’s opening
  • Best review section
  • Best in-depth writing
  • Best online/multi-media presentation of visuals
  • Best magazine website

In addition, the magazine took second or third place in several categories, including best regular column, best coverage of vocations to the priesthood and best online blog.

Two Jesuit authors were also recognized for their books by the CPA.

Jesuit Father Gerard J. McGlone and co-author Len Sperry received second place in the Professional Development category for their book “The Inner Life of Priests,” published by Liturgical Press. The CPA called it “an exceptional book for anyone in vocation work, seminary training or priestly evaluation.”

Jesuit Father Sonny Manuel won second place in the First Time Author category for his book “Living Celibacy: Healthy Pathways for Priests,” published by Paulist Press. The CPA described it as a “thoughtful yet practical approach to the celibate life. Though aimed specifically at priests this handbook could also be useful for those in the single, divorced or widowed states, who are trying to live chastely, celibate lives.”
