ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The Catholic Herald-Diocese of Madison won four awards in the annual Catholic Press Association Press Awards competition announced at the annual Catholic Media Conference held recently in St. Louis.

The awards included:

• General Excellence -- Judges commented, "Solid paper with well-written stories. News in this paper comes from a far-flung array of parishes, parochial schools, and communities distant from the chancery. Smoothly written and edited articles provide an interesting perspective on Catholic life and activities across a broad geographical area."

• Best Editorial on a Local Issue -- "Protecting pain-capable unborn children," by Catholic Herald editor Mary C. Uhler. Judges commented, "Tackling this controversial but difficult topic -- the pain of abortion on the unborn -- is not easy, but the writer has done so with simple, direct language."

• Best Personally Profile -- "Fighting for the forgotten," by Catholic Herald reporter Kevin Wondrash, about Mary-Kate Martin, founder of Hosea's Heart.

• Best Coverage of the Year of Faith -- "Reflections on Religious Life," by Abbot Marcel Rooney.
