Catholic Press’ Highest Honor

Matthew Schiller, outgoing president of the Catholic Press Association and the business and advertising manager at Catholic New York, accepts the St. Francis de Sales Award June 23 during the 2017 Catholic Media Conference in Quebec City. Schiller holds up three fingers to illustrate how many times he had been nominated for the award, the highest honor given by the CPA. Schiller is a native of Richmond Hill, who attended Archbishop Molloy H.S., Briarwood, and St. John’s University, Jamaica. He started his career at The Tablet and rose to the ranks of business manager and then associate publisher. From 1993 to 2006, he worked in business, development and marketing for a Catholic school in Newark, N.J., before returning to the Catholic Press with Catholic New York.(CNS photo/Chaz Muth)
