Story on 2012 Year of Interfaith Understanding Wins National Award

Date: May 14, 2014

Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly has received a 2014 Gabriel Award in the Ecumenical and Interreligious National Release Category for Television for its story "Grand Rapids Interfaith Year,"

http://www.pbs.org/wnet/religionandethics/2013/02/01/february-1-2013-grand-rapids-interfaith-year/14629/ reported by correspondent Judy Valente and produced by Gail Fendley. 

The Gabriel Awards are sponsored by the Catholic Academy of Communication Professionals. They recognize excellence in television, radio, and film that serves audiences through the positive, creative treatment of concern for humankind: "The single-most important criterion of a Gabriel-winning program is its ability to uplift and nourish the human spirit. A Gabriel-worthy film or program affirms the dignity of human persons; it recognizes and upholds universally recognized human values such as community, creativity, tolerance, justice, compassion, and dedication to excellence."

The Gabriel Awards are open to media producers of all faith backgrounds. They will be presented at a ceremony in Charlotte, North Carolina, on June 19.
