The awards celebrate Catholic journalism published in 2016.

"Exceptionally informative and interesting," wrote the CPA Awards committee about Jesuits magazine. "This magazine uses a variety of methods to tell its stories, and those stories are sharply honed to pass on good writing."

The award for Magazine/Newsletter of the Year follows the Midwest Jesuits' redesign of their magazine to prepare for the Chicago-Detroit and Wisconsin Provinces joining to become the USA Midwest Province. The magazine took second place for Best Redesign.
