Journal lauded at church press awards.

It received five awards, including an award of excellence for best feature article in the newspaper category, at the Associated Church Press (ACP) Convention held last April in Toronto. In May, it netted six awards, including one for the category of general excellence in a national newspaper, at the Canadian Church Press (CCP) convention in Toronto.

At the CCP awards ceremony, Ms. Rowley won first prize in newspaper feature layout and design for A Coast in Crisis. She also received honourable mentions in layout and design of a front page (May 2003), and layout and design of an entire edition (May 2003).

Archbishop Michael Peers, the former primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, won CCP's first prize for his Anglican Journal column Grace Notes. (the column ended with the retirement of Archbishop Peers last February). He was also given an ACP award of merit for his column, We meet God when we look up (April 2003), which spoke of the primate's experiencing of Canterbury Cathedral in new ways.

Journal staff writer Solange De Santis and former staff writer Jane Davidson shared a CCP honourable mention for treatment of a news event for their stories on the residential schools agreement.

The Anglican also won two awards from CCP. Additionally, the national newspaper and news service for the Episcopal Church in the United States, Episcopal Life and Episcopal News Service won 18 ACP awards.
