2017 END OF YEAR REPORT INFORMATION
Here is the letter sent to State Presidents and Catholic Action Officers on file. Please read it with regard to this year.
Project St. Patrick
Project St. Patrick is a Catholic Action program of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, Ancient Order of Hibernians and friends which was initiated in 1995. This program was created to provide financial support to seminarians and religious by giving vocational grants of $500.00. Many of the young men and women do not have enough money to cover their expenses (books, insurance, food, clothing, tuition) and are unable to work at outside jobs due to their heavy schedule of classes and studying. By donating to Project St. Patrick and using the Project St. Patrick “In Honor Of” cards for any ‘living’ or ‘deceased’ you will help relieve some of their financial burden. With a $500.00 donation a PSP vocation grant can be named in honor of your chosen person.
For Project St. Patrick cards, please contact Colleen Bowers firstname.lastname@example.org
SOAR (Support Our Aging Religious)
The needs of aging religious are a crisis in our nation today. SOAR helps financially distressed Catholic religious congregations in the United States in the care of their elderly and infirm members. The organization provides assistance on a temporary basis. In the past, donations have helped to renovate space for handicapped accessibility, purchase electric beds and handicapped accessible vans and have also helped to install fire alarm, nurse call and wandering system.
Right To Life
Every minute three more children die from abortion in the United States alone and countless others are threatened with death by infanticide and euthanasia. With this statistic in mind it is important for the LAOH to continue their support in promoting and defending the right to life of the innocent human beings.
