Philadelphia Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians

Filed under: Latest News |

The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, Inc., have a great presence in the City of Philadelphia. With 600 plus members, we are an order of Irish Catholic ladies who practice our motto of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity. We have seven active divisions throughout Philadelphia. Our organization recently celebrated its 125th anniversary with a mass at Father Judge Chapel and a luncheon at one of our divisions. On 12/14/2019, the Philadelphia Hibernian Hunger Project (made up of both AOH and LAOH members) served 230 needy families Christmas Food Baskets. These families were identified by a Hibernian request, local schools, churches and nonprofit community organizations. Families were served in Philadelphia, Bucks County, Delaware County and New Jersey. This yearly tradition is a tremendous effort of both the AOH & LAOH exemplifying our motto at Christmas for our families in need in our area and surrounding communities.
Listed below are the divisions in the region:
Division #4 – St. Ita (Mayfair)
Division #17 – Queen Maeve (Far Northeast)
Division #25 – Mother Catherine McAuley (Krewstown)
Division #39 – St. Brigid (Mayfair)
Division #61 – St. Katharine Drexel (Holmesburg)
Division #87 – Our Lady of Knock (Port Richmond)
Division #88 – Officer Danny Boyle (Somerton)
Some of the activities our ladies participate in are as follows:
