A Word From the Editor
Dear Web Visitor,
You're viewing one of the best of Catholic Web
sites! That's according to the judges of the 2001 journalism competition
sponsored by the Catholic Press Association of the United States
and Canada. AmericanCatholic.org was awarded First Place
in that competition on May 25, 2001, at the association's national
convention in Dallas, Texas.
The judges commented, "This site has first-rate organization
from the home page through the sub menus on subsequent sections.
Programmed menus on the the home page offer the latest technology
in easy-to-use navigation. Full features include search, product
ordering online, news and articles as well as streaming audio-video.
Graphics are small and download quickly."
Receiving First Place from this association of all of the major
Catholic newspapers, magazines and publishers in the United States
and Canada is an honor indeed. We are proud to say we do it for
you, the people who come to visit us on the Web.
You'll be pleased to know that many of the articles, columns
and editorials that appeared on this site during the past year
were honored individually, as well. All told, St. Anthony Messenger
Press received 36 awards in this year's competition.
My hat is off to the many people
who contribute to bring you AmericanCatholic.org, one of the
finest of Catholic Web sites.
Peace and all good!
John Bookser Feister
