Announcing the New Evangelization Award for Excellence in Catholic Blogging 2017

New Evangelization

N.B.: It was brought to our attention that Canon 212 does not meet requirement #1. (Thank you Sister S.) Nonetheless, our readership's support and our staff's appreciation of the site was so strong, we are honoring Canon 212 just the same (the 3 year requirement is tabled now and forever). JMJ Br. Bartholomew Joseph

We are pleased to announce the winners of the 3rd annual New Evangelization Award for Catholic bloggers and websites. The Catholic blogosphere is home to thousands of sites. These Catholic websites uniquely contribute to evangelizing and engaging a society which is hostile toward Judeo-Christian ideals and the "culture of life" of which St. John Paul II spoke. In order to qualify, a blog must:

1.) Have been in existence for at least 3 years

2.) Publish or feature content faithful to the Magisterium of the Church

3.) Evangelize and inform Catholics, and all who seek the fullness of truth

This year's recipients are:

Canon 212


Servant and Steward

Thank you to our readers who nominated blogs for this award.

Well, it sort of meets requirement #1. Frank Walker, the man who runs Canon212, used to do most of the work for the old Pewsitter. When Pewsitter came under new day to day control, it's spirit, so to speak, moved to Canon212.

The new Pewsitter is also a great Catholic news site, by the way, but there is nevertheless a continuity between the old Pewsitter and the "new" Canon212.

Yes. Canon212 is awesome. However, when it comes to Pewsitter, the verdict is still out. I’ve heard both positive and negative things about the site. (See here, here and here.)

Congratulations to all the winners! I have especially enjoyed Father Zehnle’s blog

@Catholic Guy, I have heard the same thing about Pewsitters. Not quite sure what to think. We should all employ due diligence and critical thinking when considering a source,

I only wish I could nominate Big C Catholics for this award! This is a most excellent website.

CONGRATULATIONS to the diligent and dutiful Frank Waker whose Canon 212 is a daily must read
