PARADE SATURDAY MARCH 8, 2014 at 2 P.M The national AOH is celebrating its founding 178 years ago in 1836 at St. James Church on James St. in Manhattan, NY.
The Ancient Order of Hibernians, Division 16 , a non-profit organization was formed on September 13, 1891 consisting of men of Irish descent and practicing Roman Catholics living in the Northern Westchester area. The division has a long and distinguished history of serving different community groups in the area as well as hosting northern Westchester County’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Mount Kisco, New York. The annual parade results in a positive image for Northern Westchester and benefits area businesses in Mount Kisco. Membership is also available for the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians.
AOH welcomes delegation from Ireland
The A.O.H. seeks to promote friendship, unity, and Christian charity. Throughout the year the division raises thousands of dollars for local groups such as the Boys and Girls Club of Northern Westchester, Hospice of Northern Westchester, and Rosary Hill Cancer Center. The A.O.H. originated in America in N.Y.C. on May 4, 1836 in order to protect the Catholic Church from a mounting wave of religious bigotry, discrimination, and mob violence. In April 1844 the AOH valiantly defended the old St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC from being burned down. Division 16 meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. For further information or an application, please write: AOH P.O. Box 473 Mount Kisco, NY 10549.
