Ancient Order of Hibernians
Morris County, Division One
Our hearts go out to those who have passed or whom are missing as a result of the events of September 11th.
Welcome to the Morris County, Division One Ancient Order of Hibernians. The Ancient Order of Hibernians is an Irish Catholic fraternal organization which celebrates the rich Irish language, culture and history. This division has been formed in response to the need to have AOH representation in Morris County and the southern half of the Diocese of Paterson. Historically, divisions served these needs in adjacent divisions in Somerville and Montclair. We have seen the need to respond to the growing needs of Morris County's large Irish American Catholic population. Thank you for joining us.St Patrick's historically Irish cemetery vandalized
In the Hibernia section of Rockaway, the old St Patrick's cemetery run by one of our brother Hibernians was grave-robbed. A link is included to the Daily Record article. There is going to be a clean up. For more information on helping out, please click here.
Posthumous Citizenship ceremony for 28 Irish Korean War Vets
On October 30, 2003, the Office of Citizenship in U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS), a component of the Department of Homeland Security, will hold a posthumous citizenship ceremony for 28 Irish immigrants who died in service to the United States during the Korean War. This ceremony is the culmination of more than 25 years of public and congressional effort to secure citizenship for these fallen heroes.
As always, please pray for peace in Northern Ireland.
