Project St. Patrick pins and bookmarks are available in packs of ten. The cost is $100 per pack of ten, this includes shipping and handling.

Each Project St. Patrick card comes with an insert card to be completed by the member who purchases the card. The completed insert card (complete with Name, Division, County and State) and pre-addressed envelope should be returned to the National Catholic Action Officer with a check made out to LAOH, Inc with Project St. Patrick in the Memo. Cards are purchased for a suggested minimum donation of $10, however, higher amounts may be donated. Each Catholic Action Officer should track the donations from their Divisions on the Catholic Action Donation form and send a copy of this completed form up the chain to Catholic Action Officers on the County and State levels for their records. A copy of the Catholic Action Donation form can also be found on the National LAOH website. Each State Catholic Action Officer will receive a quarterly report from the National Catholic Action Officer summarizing the Project St. Patrick and SOAR donations for their state.

(SOAR!) is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization which raises funds and provides grants to help Catholic religious congregations in the United States care for their elderly and infirm members.

This assistance ensures the safety, peace of mind, and dignity of aging and infirm Sisters, Brothers and Priests.

Spirit of St. Brigid Project

The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians participated in the Spirit of St. Brigid project at the LAOH national convention in Pittsburgh PA. The chosen charities were the Center for Victims in Pittsburgh PA which is a domestic violence shelter and the Red Door Charity which helps domestic violence victims and provides lunches to the homeless. The LAOH was very charitable with over $3,400.00 to the Red Door and many donations of towels and needed things for the Center for Victims.

Thank You to all of the Charity sponsors, as usual the LAOH is very generous.
