The Marist Messenger won prizes for best editorial, best article on catechesis and best magazine layout and design at the Australasian Catholic Press Association awards.
Awarding the best magazine layout and design, the judges said the Messenger was a highly readable magazine that showed energy and purpose in its design combined with pertinent, authoritative and well presented articles.
Describing the winner of the best article on catechesis, the judges said the article provided an opportunity for people to grow in their understanding of a challenging word in the creed without being preachy. They said the article also appealed because it could be used in a wide range of catechetical situations.
The Messenger won best editorial for its balanced, constructive and timely consideration of the suicide topic.
The awards were announced last night at the Australasian Catholic Press Associations’s Annual Conference in this year held in Wellington.
Delegates New Zealand the Pacific and Australia gathered for the occasion.
