Bishop Cupich honored by Catholic Press Association

the Inland Register

(From the July 18, 2013 edition of the Inland Register)

At the 2013 Catholic Press Awards, America magazine, published by the Society of Jesus, was honored for “Best Coverage of Religious Liberty Issues,” for a series of articles on the subject.

Bishop Cupich was one of the authors in the America series. He contributed “Finding opportunity in a painful moment,” published in the March 5, 2012 edition.

The article was also published in the March 15, 2012 edition of the Inland Register. The article is posted on the Spokane Diocese web site.

Other authors contributing to the series included Mary Ann Glendon, professor at Harvard Law School and former U.S. ambassador to the Vatican; Jesuit Father David Hollenbach, who holds the University Chair in Human Rights and International Justice at Boston College; and Dr. Thomas A. Shannon, professor emeritus of religion and social ethics in the department of humanities at St. John’s University in Queens, N.Y.

The citation from the Catholic Press Association called the series “a wide-reaching, but thorough reflection on religious liberty today. Timely and informed, with pressing issues at the forefront. Staggering in its breadth and grasp.”
