Lay Witness Columnist Wins Catholic Press Award

We are delighted to announce that Lay Witness columnist Emily Stimpson won first place in the “Best Magazine Column” category of the Catholic Press Awards for her 2008 column “Permanent Things.”

Stimpson’s distinctive personal voice engages the reader at the same time that she is making important philosophical commentary on such matters as the “theology of the body” and “Eating with the Church” during the holidays. The role of the Church remains at the heart of her thinking. (The Catholic Journalist, June 2009)

Through the awards program, the Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada “recognizes the extraordinary achievements of its members” (source). Two columns were submitted as a sample of her writing: “Revolution” and “To Feast . . . or Not to Feast.”

Congratulations, Emily!
