April 6, 2017

NOTRE DAME, IN—Ave Maria Press is excited to announce that we have twelve finalists across multiple categories in the Association of Catholic Publishers 2017 Excellence in Publishing Awards.

Awards will be given later this year for books falling into eleven categories. A “Book of the Year” will be named from among the first-place finishers of those categories.       

Ave’s finalists are:

  • General Interest: One Ordinary Sunday by Paula Huston; The Complete Encyclicals, Bulls, and Apostolic Exhortations (Vol. 1) by Pope Francis
  • Inspirational: Divine Mercy for Moms by Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet ; Remembering God's Mercy by Dawn Eden; Twelve Little Ways to Transform Your Heart by Susan Muto
  • Prayer & Spirituality: The Catholic Mom's Prayer Companion, edited by Lisa M. Hendey and Sarah A. Reinhard
  • Resources for Ministry: Great Catholic Parishes by William E. Simon Jr.; Redeeming Conflict by Ann M. Garrido; To Heal, Proclaim, and Teach by Jared Dees; Witness by Leonard DeLorenzo
  • Resources for Ministry—Programs: Joined by Grace by John and Teri Bosio
  • Spanish: Ministerio hispano by Timothy Matovina

“I am so pleased and excited for the authors whose books have been chosen as finalists in the Excellence in Publishing Awards,” said Ave Publisher Tom Grady. “I am also delighted to see that the nominated books nicely represent the diversity of Ave’s trade and pastoral ministry publishing programs.”

Each category was judged by a three-person panel, which reviewed and evaluated the entries, reducing the number of finalists to 6-8 titles, all of which will move on to the final round of judging. First, second, and third place winners will be announced in June.
