The Great Hunger    “An Gorta Mor”

The Hibernians of Division 11 in Nassau County have started on a project to erect a monument in remembrance of  “The Great Hunger”.  As free citizens it is important to remember all those who had to flee their homeland looking for a better life. Many made it to the USA and many died trying either in the crossing or soon after. Those Immigrants that did survive are the ones who built this great country, they deserve a monument.

The monument, will honor all those who were affected by the great hunger.

The Monument is dedicated to all who had emigrated due to hunger, religious persecution or oppression of any kind.

Assistance from individuals or organizations will be required to make this monument a reality. 


We are now getting bids for the monument. The size and color of the stone to be used as well as the final design are being determined and balanced against the price.



CLICK  HERE TO DONATE to the Hunger Memorial Fund !

You should be proud that you helped place this monument to emigrants where it belongs.

A symbol that God Is with all of us.

Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation


6th Annual ‘Laps for Learning’

image4770September 24, 2011 

Each of us can help make a difference!

One of our projects is helping to keep the parochial schools open and attended.

Through Tomorrows Hope Foundation based in Rockville Centre NY we donate our time and energy to helping the 51 catholic Elementary Schools remain open on Long Island.

One great way is supporting the WALK-A-THON sponsored by Tomorrows Hope Foundation.

The School actually gets 50% of the amount sponsored in their name RIGHT BACK.

And a percentage comes back in scholarships for students and the rest improves the technology departments in the schools.

This is a link to Tomorrows Hope Foundation’s Holy Family Walk / Bike / Run-A-Thon page.

CLICK HERE – Todays Child is TOMORROWS HOPE – Please Sponsor a Child !

Just click on it or  copy and paste the link into your address bar.

You can sponsor a child in school for $10 and let them get additional sponsors or add more yourself.

They can even bring checks at  the event for payment.

Or you can click on a student’s name listed on the page and add to their goal.

I am hoping to get more supporters from Holy Family School.

Feel free to pass on this message.

Thank you


This is a great cause that needs our help!

Tomorrows Hope Foundation (THF) grants money to help families get and keep their children in Parochial Elementary school.

They give to students Grades 1 through 8, helping their family afford the private school tuition.

This helps keep the schools open.

Today’s Children are Tomorrows Hope!

  Catholics at the Capitol


Timothy Cardinal Dolan and the Bishops of New York State joined hundreds of fellow Catholic New Yorkers at the annual Catholics at the Capitol public policy advocacy day at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center in Albany.














AOH at the second  STAND UP FOR FREEDOM JUNE 8, 2012 In addition to the 15 Catholic bishops scheduled to speak at Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom locations, countless other influential speakers from all walks of life will also be addressing rallies throughout the country this Friday, June 8th.

Rally Guidelines and Protocols

The Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom welcomes all participants, of whatever religious persuasion — and even those of no religious faith — who are united by support for and desire to protect the United States Constitution’s First Amendment right of religious liberty currently under attack by the HHS Mandate.

It is not the purpose of these Rallies to promote or advocate for any political party or political movement. Thus Rally participants are asked to not bring political party or candidate signage to the rallies or distribute such literature.

All those who attend are expected to comport themselves peacefully at all times while asserting their Constitutional right to freedom of assembly.

Families, even those with small children, should feel at home and comfortable attending this Rally.

If opposition protests are conducted, Rally participants will not engage counter demonstrators or hecklers with loud verbal argumentation, name-calling or derogatory remarks, nor will such opponents be physically engaged in any way.

Any interference with Rally participants’ rights to freedom of speech and assembly will be referred to police authorities by local Rally leaders.

If Rally participants are approached by media for comment, they should refer reporters and journalists to local rally coordinators for an interview.

March For Life 2011 from Mirandum Pictures on Vimeo.

This is a video from a you-tube videographer.  As usual there was little to no news coverage I saw.

And The media in Washington treated it as just a traffic warning on the local news.
How can something like the sacredness of life be reduced to a traffic obstical?

Much like the rest of the AOH, Division 11 supports pro-life activities and every year participates in a march in Washington D.C. We will have more information as it comes in on this very important event.

Action  OHunger

Commodore John Barry AOH Div. 11 delivers to Hicksville Outreach and Human Services
In need of high protein Canned Meat is always needed, and more convenient items like Coffee are rarely get donated.

The Irish were intentionally starved out of their homes
as well as their Country.
This exodus caused by the Great  Hunger brought
millions of Irish people to the USA.
Many who made this journey survived but so many thousands did not.

The Irish Immigrant knew hunger as few others ever did. One of our major efforts under the HIBERNIAN HUNGER PROJECT is to help our local food pantries. No one in this country should want for food.
Or have their children go without the necessary nutrition.

If Possible Please Donate to the Food Pantries.

Every Cent you donate here through AOH Div.11 that is earmarked for the Food Pantry makes it to our Food Pantry. Unlike charities that have only a percentage of your donation make it to where it was intended.

Find it in your heart to donate something now.

Article reprinted from the “Long Island Catholic”


There has seen a huge increase in the number of people seeking assistance in the past few years. In September 2007, the parish outreach fed 292 people. This past September, they fed 552 people, Samodulski said, noting that this increase occurred despite the fact that the pantry was open five days per week in 2007 and now is open only three days.

People who receive aid at St. Ignatius fall generally into four categories, said Samodulski. Undocumented immigrants make up a large percentage of the clientele. “These are the people who are busing our tables, washing our cars and mowing our lawns,” he said, but don’t make enough to feed their families.

Some of the clients are homeless people. “The homeless population of our clients has dwindled from 45 to about 12, because a lot of the people we used to see have died,” said Samodulski.

Two other groups are growing in numbers, according to Samodulski. Each month the parish assists between 35 and 45 senior citizen households, most living on fixed incomes.

The fastest growing group is the ostensibly middle class,” he said. “They have been laid off, downsized or outsourced. They have tuition and mortgage payments they can no longer afford because the primary or secondary wage earner or both have lost jobs.”

“While the numbers (of this group) are small in comparison (to the other groups) they have grown most quickly, almost double in the past year,” he added.

Here is an article that was published about the food not getting to those people who need it. Also the food they have on hand and pay to store is not a variety of food needed by the pantries! …Note: The article in Newsday did not even address this point.

Thank you letter to the Ancient Order of Hibernians Division 11 John Barry A.O.H. for the tons of food this year.
Over 2,000 lbs in the past season was delivered to the local outreach centers in Hicksville NY through Division 11.  That helped a lot as more than 1,495 distributions were made from the St. Ignatius center in November alone. And this number includes 692 Children and 510 households!

Reasons for Learning:
An Gorta Mor – The Great Hunger

The Ancient Order of Hibernians, America’s largest Irish Cultural organization, has assembled the information contained in this site to advance the understanding of An Gorta Mor – Ireland’s Great Hunger from 1845 through 1851 and beyond – a tragic time in world history whose impact has yet to be truly recognized. There are only two instances in history in which ethnic cleansing has been perpetrated against a people not as a reprisal for rebellion, civil strife nor political retaliation. Those two are the Holocaust and An Gorta Mor.
