CatholicPhilly.com won two awards from the Catholic Press Association at a presentation June 21, part of the annual Catholic Media Convention in Denver, Colo.
The official news website of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and digital successor to The Catholic Standard and Times won third place for “Best General Publisher Website.” The award citation noted CatholicPhilly.com’s “clean navigation,” which invites readers to explore the site for Catholic news and information that is updated daily.
In the “Best Electronic Newsletter” category, CatholicPhilly.com captured honorable mention status. The award citation noted the newsletter’s “lively content, clean presentation; calls you to click.”
The free weekly newsletter was launched in July 2012 and now is sent via email to more than 2,000 subscribers. Each edition includes links to about a dozen local, national and world news items and Archbishop Charles Chaput’s weekly column, feature stories on Catholics, commentaries and arts and culture articles of interest to Catholics.
CatholicPhilly.com’s newsletter was the only such entry produced by a Catholic diocese to win the award.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
