A recipient of multiple CPA awards for writing, photography and editing, Feister won the 2010 Christopher Award for Thea’s Song: The Life of Thea Bowman. His expertise in print publications, audio-visual media and digital and social media led to him being tapped as a USCCB Communications Committee consultant member and elected to the board and vice president of the Catholic Academy of Communications Professionals and the Catholic Press Association.

His commitment to reach out in new ways was seen in his efforts developing the OnceCatholic.org presence, lauded by Cardinal John Foley as an example of what the church should be striving to offer in a digital world. Feister introduced many of us to social media and Twitter when he interviewed its founder at the 2009 Catholic Media Convention, challenging us to look and grow beyond how we have previously defined our organizations.
