The St. Louis Review and Catholic St. Louis magazine earned 22 awards for writing, photography, design, multimedia and general excellence at the 2016 Catholic Press Association awards ceremony June 3 in St. Louis.
The Review won third place in general excellence in weekly newspapers with circulation of 25,001 or more. Judges wrote that the paper “presented a variety of articles and viewpoints on topics ranging from the relationship of fish and Lent to the homeless community, to safety in Catholic schools. Great writing.”
