RECIPIENT OF THE 2016 ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC PUBLISHERS EXCELLENCE IN PUBLISHING AWARD
Marge Fenelon's OUR LADY, UNDOER OF KNOTS: A LIVING NOVENA (Ave Maria Press) has been awarded Second Place in the 2016 Association of Catholic Publishers EXCELLENCE IN PUBLISHING AWARD in the Inspiration category. From the Press Release: "Fenelon's Our Lady, Undoer of Knots: A Living Novena created a new devotional practice - from the classic novena that is a favorite of Pope Francis.

Fenelon is a veteran Catholic journalist, columnist, and author of a number of books related to Marian devotion and Catholic family life including Imitating Mary."
