Midwest Jesuits Magazine Wins Catholic Press Association Awards

Jesuits magazine, a publication of the USA Midwest Province of the Society of Jesus, won several Catholic Press Association (CPA) Awards, including first place for Magazine/Newsletter of the Year: Religious Order Magazine and first place for "Social Entrepreneurship: Not Just Business as Usual" in the Best Feature Article: Religious Order Magazine category. The awards celebrate Catholic journalism published in 2016.

"Exceptionally informative and interesting," wrote the CPA Awards committee about Jesuits magazine. "This magazine uses a variety of methods to tell its stories, and those stories are sharply honed to pass on good writing."

The award for Magazine/Newsletter of the Year follows the Midwest Jesuits' redesign of their magazine to prepare for the Chicago-Detroit and Wisconsin Provinces joining to become the USA Midwest Province. The magazine took second place for Best Redesign.

Vincent Strand and his two brothers sharing a vocation to the priesthood, in the Best Reporting on Vocations to Priesthood, Religious Life or Diaconate category and "The Audacity to Seek the Impossible," an article about Jesuit Fr.
