A Catholic publishing company has apologized for its use of a Mormon angel on the cover of two Catholic publications, and is determining how best to move forward.
"Dear Partners in Ministry, we have heard your concerns, we admit our error and we apologize for the cover art on the 2021 Respond & Acclaim and Music Issue," said a statement from Oregon Catholic Press published Aug. 25.
Oregon Catholic Press said they were "unaware of the association with the Mormon angel Moroni," and that "we should have done more research".
"We apologize for this embarrassing mistake," they said, adding that they would "never knowingly use an image that is not authentically Catholic on our publications."
