Reader vote ranks top 10 stories of 2013

Readers overwhelmingly chose Pope Francis' election as the top story of 2013 via online vote at www.thecatholictelegraph.com.

From Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation (see March 2013 cover) to Pope Francis’ election (April 2013 cover) and everything since, The Catholic Telegraph has had the story.

The year 2013 saw the paper’s cover redesigned, and an increased emphasis on the website and social media, even if things didn’t always go according to plan.

“There’s an old line that if you want to make God laugh, make a plan,” Editor-in-Chief Steve Trosley said. “That applies in news without a doubt. We started the year with some grand plans but the pace of the news — a papal election for example, the sheer size of the archdiocese and the requests from our parishes, schools and other groups for coverage preempted most of our designs.”

Still, more than 500 stories appeared in the pages and website of The Catholic Telegraph in 2013.

With that in mind The Catholic Telegraph nominated 10 stories as the year’s best and invited readers select the order via an online survey.

Below, in the order voted by readers, is a glance at the top 10 stories of 2013. Continue reading

Geraldina attends Holy Family School in Price Hill and her parents are thrilled she’s there. “It’s very important because she is starting a Catholic education at a young age,” says Geraldina’s father, Eulalio Jeronimo, through an interpreter. “When they are older they will have a big knowledge of the faith,” he adds.  Continue reading

 
Can’t name the 10 commandments? This is pitiful

Catholic Thoughts, September 2013

This is pitiful! Recently, an archdiocesan priest was teaching a class for catechetical certification for teachers and volunteers. The class included 28 Catholic schoolteachers. To change things up a bit, Father thought it would be fun to randomly ask the teachers a few questions of faith. The first question he asked was “What are the Ten Commandments?” He pointed to a teacher for a response, but the teacher could not name them. Continue reading
