We are saddened to hear about the sudden killing of Sister Margaret Held and Sister Paula Merrill, both members of Pax Christi.

We hold in high regard the lives they led in service to peace, justice, and people in situations of poverty. It is never easy to understand why such tragedies and violence happen. We pray for peace, the eternal rest of Sister Margaret and Sister Paula, healing for their family and friends, and mercy and love for the person who took their lives.

“We stand in solidarity with those feeling the pain of this tragedy,” Sr. Patricia Chappell, SNDdeN, Executive Director of Pax Christi USA said. “May God grant Sister Margaret and Sister Paula eternal peace.”
