Our Sunday Visitor continues its centennial celebrations this week at the June 20-22 Catholic Media Conference in Indianapolis. On Wednesday evening, OSV will host a dinner at the conference to honor its 100th anniversary. Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia will be the keynote speaker. OSV is a gold sponsor of the conference.
Through his role as secretary of the National Catholic Welfare Council, Bishop Noll helped launch Catholic News Service and "the Catholic Hour" on NBC radio. He also played a pivotal role in the development of the Catholic Press Association. In 1953, Archbishop Noll was honored by the Catholic Press Association with a special plaque thanking him for his "monumental contributions" to the Catholic press.
Check back for pictures and news from the conference, which will feature a great mix of presenters and panelists, including Brandon Vogt, Elizabeth Scalia, Deacon Greg Kandra, Catholic Relief Services CEO Carolyn Woo and Archbishop Claudio Celli, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications.
