Patheos Writers Honored by Catholic Press Association

The Catholic Press Association, Naming Names

If it has seemed quiet around here, lately, that's thanks to the Catholic Press Association, whose annual Catholic Media Conference (#CMC15) has lured me (and Deacon Greg and Denise Bossert) to Buffalo for an adventure. Tomorrow we all go home but tonight saw a number of Patheos Catholic bloggers honored by the CPA, beginning with Marge Fenelon being named as an Egan Fellow by Catholic Relief Services. As a Fellow she will be traveling to the Philippines with CRS to report on the continuing … [Read more...]

Stef

As noted in the post below, I am offline until the end of the month on what we might call a mini "book sabbatical" (pray for me!) but it just occurred to me that in my rush to tie up loose ends, I had forgotten to announce a new addition to our immense line-up of great writers.

Jane really is an … [Read more...]
