Compass wins five awards

Bp. Morneau receives first place honors for column

The Compass won five awards at the Catholic Press Association's annual convention, May 24-26 in Nashville.

The Compass received these awards:

• First place for spiritual life column by Bp. Robert Morneau;

• First place for circulation campaign for the phone-a-thon at Notre Dame Academy;

• Second place for color portrait of Bp. Aloysius Wycislo taken by Rick Evans;

• Third place for an editorial on a national/international issue, "Speculation fever," written by Tony Staley;

• Honorable mention for a story on Fr. Ray Conard written by Jeff Kurowski.

In their comments, the judges said:

• Bp. Morneau "addresses challenging spiritual issues in lucid, insightful prose. You walk away from each column with a lesson to apply in life."

• Having a student call for subscriptions is a great idea - cheap labor as well as the difficulty of saying 'no' on the other end. I also like the training aspect it provided students. A very cost effective effort."

• "I never met Bp. Wycislo, but having seen photographer Rick Evans' portrait of him, I think I know him well. The tentative smile, the eyes probing yet comforting, the relaxed cast of his body, all tell of a warm and gentle man. The dramatic side lighting adds to the strength of the photograph."

• "A strongly worded piece [editorial] that challenges the secrecy surrounding the choice of a new pope. Constructive and well-reasoned, it's a forceful argument for openness."
