Pax-Peace

Lamar Advertising has joined again with the three Catholic religious communities of women here in Erie to provide billboards proclaiming our commitment to peace.

This one is presently located on the south side of W. 26th Street right after the off ramp for the I-79 exit there, traveling east. It is a great location and will certainly attract much attention, in both its simplicity and message.

For Benedictines the call to peace efforts is deep and strong, as the Latin word, Pax, is much used in monasteries and abbeys throughout the world. I have seen it over doorways, on art pieces, liturgical books, medals and in countless other formats in monastic communities.

Here in our community it is the pivotal subject of our Corporate Commitment.
