CSF wins 2 Catholic press awards

July 27, 2017

Catholic San Francisco earned recognition from the 2017 Catholic Press Association in its annual press awards competition. The organization announced the award at its annual conference in June.

Catholic San Francisco received a second place award in the category of Best Editorial for Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone’s pre-election opinion piece entitled, “Archbishop: Don’t Legalize Marijuana.”

Judges commended Archbishop Cordileone’s data-driven piece which cited evidence from citations in multiple states and for his own admission of a traffic stop for alcohol in giving credence to his argument against legalizing marijuana.

Catholic San Francisco reporter Christina Gray also received an honorable mention for her coverage of the funeral of a beloved homeless man at Star of the Sea Parish in San Francisco. The award was for best personality profile.

The 2017 awards were received for work produced in 2016 by CPA-member Catholic publications in the United States.
