Apply for an Award

On 19 July 1998, the Saint Charles Borromeo Catholic Church Web Site started an awards program. Below are the awards along with the criteria associated with each award. We take these awards very seriously and, as such, guard them closely. The criteria, although it may appear subjective in some cases, are stated as clearly as possible and will not be compromised. The purpose of the website, the style, layout, content, rate of update, graphics, navigatability, lack of broken/dead links, speed, and imagery are all taken into consideration. Above all, the web sites must demonstrate complete loyalty to the Magisterium of the Church. While surfing the web, if you notice one of our awards displayed, you know full well that the award was deserved at the time it was awarded. However, we cannot control changes made by any of these sites after being awarded. If the awarded sites are retained in our list of winners, the awarded site has, to the best of our knowledge, remained worthy of the award.


Catholic Website Award for Organizations The Catholic Website Award for Organizations is awarded only to web sites that are exclusively Catholic in nature representing one or more organizations. Our Organization winners are typically Church web pages and Parish web pages.

Catholic Website Award for Personal Sites The Catholic Website Award for Personal Sites is given only to those personal web sites that explicitly state and demonstrate both devotion and dedication to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Notwithstanding, these sites must also be completely in line with the teachings of the Magisterium.

Catholic Website Award for Apologetics The Catholic Website Award for Apologetics is reserved for those web sites that are dedicated to the defense of the Catholic faith. We've reserved a special award category to apologetics because, in this day in time, as the Mystical Body of Christ continues to come under attack, we Catholics need to be aware of the "truth." Without a solid knowledge of what our faith is as WHY, seeds of doubt (weeds) are allowed to grow and could choke out the good crop.

Catholic Website Award for Resources The Catholic Website Award for Resources is given to those web sites that are dedicated to or are in large part focused on making available (for purchase or free) Catholic resources (literary, audio, visual) over the net.

Catholic Website Award for Super Sites The Catholic Website Award for Super Sites is presented only to, in what my personal opinion is, a truly exceptional Catholic web site. Not only do these sites meet the stringent criteria of one or more of the other awards, these awardees expend a tremendous amount of time, effort and money to bring us a vast and expansive array of Catholic resources. These sites are the " Catholic Top Ten", as it were, of the web.
