Last week, the Catholic Press Association held its annual convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Catholic media remains a vital component of evangelization and community-building within the Church, as well as an indispensable source of news and opinion, from the parish level to the universal Church, for all Catholics.
Our local Church is blessed to have a very successful diocesan newspaper, the Arlington Catholic Herald, which was once again recognized with numerous awards at the CPA’s annual gathering. Please take a moment to read the article below regarding the Herald’s latest well-earned recognition.
