Our Global Family, a monthly column written by Dr. Carolyn Y. Woo, president & CEO of Catholic Relief Services, won the top prize at the 2013 Catholic Press Awards for Best Regular Spiritual Life Column. The column, which is distributed by Catholic News Service, can also be read on the CRS Newswire.
Each month, Dr. Woo writes about spirituality from a global perspective, drawing upon her experience of growing up in Hong Kong, her life as an educator, wife and mother, and her travels with Catholic Relief Services. In honoring Dr. Woo, the judges said they “appreciated the global insights and perspectives of this collection of topics. Writer delved into her experiences while not making it too journal-like.”
The award was announced June 21 at the annual Catholic Media Conference in Denver.
