Happy St. Patrick's Day to One & All

 

Welcome to Irish Heritage Month. This month is when everyone shows that there is a little Irish in their background.  

As we all celebrate St. Patrick’s day and all the festivities that arise please remember the reason we have these celebrations. It is because of St. Patrick and other well known Irish Saints that our beloved mother country of Ireland became so faithful to Christianity. Our Irish ancestors went on to populate many areas around the world bringing the faith and teachings of these Saints of Ireland with them. Eventually we all started to celebrate where we came. Our heritage from these great Saints is so ingrained into our everyday life that we celebrate our past and for that we should be thankful and happy.

The Other Saints I refer to are St. Brigid of Kildare who is celebrated for her generosity to the poor. St. Brigid is the Patron saint of Ireland’s, dairymaids, cattle, midwives, Irish nuns and new-born babies. St. Brigid is much celebrated by the LAOH.

Then we have St. Colmcille (St. Columba) who is the Patron Saint of Derry, floods, bookbinders, poets, Ireland and Scotland.

Another Saint is St. Oliver Plunkett who is the Patron saint of Peace and Reconciliation in Ireland

There are so many more Saints from Ireland so keep them all in mind while we Celebrate this wonderful time around St. Patrick’s Day.

 

We re-opened the Hibo's Pub in Late June , we re-arranged furniture and allowed for social distancing and physical barriers to accommodate our members. We then registered for and underwent the PLCB self certification  process and I believe we were the first in Bristol to do it. We have been safely open since then with no issues or incidents caused by the pandemic.  We have also added a small food menu to comply with PLCB regulations. 

 

Check the bulletin board for more on the club and food service

 

If you did not get a chance to donate yet please send an email to bristolaoh@gmail.com and we will respond with ways that you can donate and or help out in some way. 

I would especially like to thank the members of AOH Bucks County Division 5 the James F. Cawley Sr. Division for their continued support and greatly appreciated generosity to our Division throughout the pandemic shut down.
