Matthew Schiller
Catholic New York, New York, NY


Matthew Schiller’s distinguished career in the Catholic press has included stints at two of the best in our association, Catholic New York and Brooklyn’s The Tablet. Beginning in 1973, Matt spent 20 years at The Tablet, working in business, advertising and operations, eventually being named associate publisher of the newspaper in 1989. In 1993, he started a 13-year “hiatus” from the Catholic press, during which he served a regional Catholic school with his business and marketing expertise. In 2006, he came to his senses and returned to the Catholic press, inciting much rejoicing among his colleagues, when he followed Art McKenna and became business and advertising manager of Catholic New York. Shortly thereafter, he became treasurer of the Catholic Press Association, where he served admirably, helping the association with fiscal integrity and helping members understand the annual Treasurer’s Report. He now serves the association as president.

Matt not only understands the mission and vision of the Catholic press, he lives it. He freely shares his wisdom and expertise with colleagues across the country. Many have learned more from him in a brief conversation than in an hour-long convention workshop. One colleague calls Matt “a total team player who never ever seeks the spotlight for anything.” He exemplifies “the definition of servant leadership.” Matt is always a gentleman and always a friend. Business-side members of the CPA rarely get nominated for the St. Francis de Sales award because they are not out front. We don’t see their bylines. But without them, we cannot survive or thrive. For his vision, his willingness to share his expertise with others and for sharing in the mission of Catholic journalism, Matthew Schiller is a deserving candidate for the St. Francis de Sales Award.
