Charities and Missions
Charities and Missions Update – June 2020
By Joe Norton
In this time of continued uncertainty brought on by the COVID virus, and the civil unrest currently unfolding in cities around our country, our continued focus on extending charity, supporting unity, and reinforcing old and building new friendships is increasingly important. It bears repeating, that the Ancient Order of Hibernians has always risen to the challenge of providing for those in need. Whether it be money, food, time, clothing–even support of civility among our fellow Americans, members of the Ancient Order have risen to the occasion. In these trying times we have bothers acting as first responders protecting property and responding to the call brought on by violent protests. We also have brothers protesting peacefully in support of protecting life and civil treatment of all our fellow citizens. Both must be thanked and respected for serving their respective missions. Serving humanity and the humane treatment of all is the Light Jesus brought to us and taught us to emulate.
We share in the responsibility to serve those in righteous need and to continue to fulfill our mission to promote Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity among all our worldly brothers and sisters. Please help those who need it, whether it be cleaning up after ignorant selfish and violent rioters, dropping food off at a food pantry, serving food to the hungry, volunteering at a pregnancy and aid center, coach & mentor the disadvantaged, build houses with Habitat for Humanity, and donate to funds that educate children, seminarians, and others in need. There are many ways we can serve others and too many who need our service and financial support. Donate to Hibernian Charities by sending your checks to
