AOH MEITHEAL – for St. Columcille Day “Advent Of Hope”‏

The 2013 AOH Nassau County Board Christmas Project;

The Irish word ‘ Meitheal’ means ‘a collective effort for the greater good of the community’.
It describes the old Irish tradition of people coming together to respond to local needs.

The next collective effort is happening this Saturday The AOH will help a neighborhood family decorate their home for the Christmas Holiday.
We will start at 7 with all hands on deck and finish the outside and inside before 11:am.


Hi Jack and all,

   Thank you all for giving this family a very special Christmas memory. I am sure they will not forget the kindness that was shown to them today. It was a definite honor to be with you all today. Seeing the good work that you have all done in Christ’s name. This is really and truly the meaning of what Christmas is about. Thank you for the invite today. May God continue to bless you for all the good work that you do.
God Bless and Happy Advent,
 Fr. Frank

Hi,  Just got in and a chance to write.

A special Thanks for all the work you do!
As I said to the service club, and My own men today, you will never know how far the work you do will reach.
You did not know them before You may never see them again.
But be sure your deeds, remaining in their memories, will creep to the surface of those you helped.

Perhaps when they least expect it.
You have touched their lives, and it is a story that will be regaled in spirit for years to come.
MERRY CHRISTMAS,
Jack  O’Brien

A 7am start for the Meitheal.

National AOH Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund

Many parts of the Northeast have been devastated. Hurricane Sandy has left us with unimaginable misery in terms of destruction, dislocation, and despair. Areas with extremely high concentrations of Hibernians truly resemble war zones where dark and heatless homes faced this frigid morning with temperatures averaging 25 degrees.

I realize you have seen the tremendous loss on TV. A neighbor of mine told me that when a newscaster showed people burning their own furniture to stay warm, he had to stop looking at the evening news.

But we, as Hibernians, cherish an Irish Catholic legacy that compels us not to look away, but instead to consistently respond to the needs of those among us and around us. If we are to fulfill the enduring mission of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, then we know that it is our responsibility to reach out with assistance and the support of our prayers so that spirits broken by a sense of helplessness will not soon be crushed by an added burden of hopelessness.

In an emergency conference call last night, the AOH National Board unanimously voted to donate $25,000 for AOH Storm Relief. In addition, a program has been authorized to both process donations and provide an opportunity for Hibernians impacted in various ways to request assistance from their Hibernian Brothers. We are counting on the generosity of our State Boards, County Boards, Divisions, and all Hibernians everywhere. If every Division, County Board, and State Board were to contribute at least $200, we would total well in excess of $100,000 without even counting the generous donations from each of our members!

HOW TO MAKE A TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION:

  • All checks MUST be written: Pay To The Order of Hibernian Charity.
  • Memo portion of your check MUST read: AOH Storm Relief.
  • Send all donations to Edward Dougherty, Hibernian Charity Sec—7236 Brous Ave, Phila, PA 19149

AOH Storm Relief Request Forms available from: State Presidents OR aoh.com (website)  OR from Seamus Boyle–3097 Willits Road, Philadelphia, PA 19114 (shay39@comcast.net)

Brothers, because the will of God is the need of the hour, I ask this entire Order to please respond generously and immediately.

Fraternally and gratefully,

Brendan Moore
AOH National President
