Broome County LAOH DIVISION #2 held an Our Lady of Knock mass on August 20th at St. Vincent de Paul Blessed Sacrament Church in Vestal, NY. Captured are AOH and LAOH Div.#1 and Div. #2 members with Father Corey VanKuren, who presided over the mass.
Message from National President Patricia A. O’Connell
Please continue to remember the many persons who have been in “harms-way” due to Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma and those who may be impacted by Hurricane Jose. Presently, I am not aware of specific needs of our LAOH membership. Thus, I am asking that the membership support your local diocesan efforts or other civic requests in your local area as they hold “collections” for those in need due to the Hurricanes.
As more information becomes available regarding the needs of our LAOH membership, the National Board will consider what kind of action ought to be recommended to the membership to assist the LAOH membership.
Please continue to pray for the safety of all displaced persons and the many workers who have been called to restore safe-living conditions.
Martin McGuinness, a former Irish Republican Army commander and Sinn Fein political leader who helped negotiate peace in Northern Ireland after decades of sectarian violence, and became a senior official in its power-sharing government, died on Tuesday in Derry. He was 66. May he rest in peace.
