Fourth in a series on the Bishop's Appeal
By Marie Gunderson
The day Fr. Ron Rolheiser came to speak in Green Bay a few years back, Tony Staley, editor of The Compass, was hoping for a decent turn out - 50-75 people. Though the popularity of Fr. Rolheiser's column was sure to bring a few spectators, the overwhelming response left only a few vacant seats in St. Bernard Church.
"There was a real spiritual need that Fr. Rolheiser filled that night and he does so every week in his column," Staley said. Along with Fr. Rolheiser, The Compass staff dedicates itself each week to feeding the spiritual needs of today's Catholics.
Amy Kawula, advertising consultant for The Compass has worked for the diocese for more than 18 years. "[The Compass] keeps you grounded in your faith," she said. "It sparks ideas and makes you want to learn more."
The Compass provides a different approach to news and society. In a world where violence and tragedy dominate the news media, The Compass offers a refreshingly positive attitude.
The Compass puts great care into its work to ensure every article is presented from a "moral and ethical standpoint," Staley said, which is what readers consistently find from reading the paper. Full story ...
