Pax Christi USA Moving National HQ to Wash. DC; Move Will Allow the Org. to Have a Greater Effect

Seeking to raise its profile on Capitol Hill and beyond, Pax Christi (Peace of Christ) USA is moving its national headquarters from Erie, PA to Washington, DC, the Catholic News Service blog reports today (March 1, 2011).

The move will allow the US arm of Pax Christi International -- the international Catholic peace organization -- to more readily address issues related to global conflicts, nuclear disarmament, justice for the world's most vulnerable people, and environmental concerns.

"We are at a point where our voice needs to be heard on a much more national scene," said Sister Josie Chrosniak, a member of the Sisters of the Humility of Mary and chairwoman of the organization's national council.

The move is expected to be completed this summer.
