AOH of Yonkers Welcomes New Division Chaplain






AOH of Yonkers Welcomes New Chaplain from Sacred Heart Parish


Fr. Matt Janeczko OFM - AOH Division #1 Chaplain

     The members of The Ancient Order of Hibernians, Myles Scully - Division #1 of Yonkers were honored to welcome Fr. Matthew Janeczko, OFM as their new Chaplain at their monthly meeting held this week.  Fr. Janeczko is the Associate Pastor of The Monastery Church of Sacred Heart in Yonkers.

     The need for a new chaplain arose when long time Yonkers AOH Chaplain Fr. Eric Raaser, Pastor of Immaculate Conception Church in Tuckahoe was moved to a new assignment by The Archdiocese of New York.  The normal term for Pastors is 6 years.  Fr. Janeczko happily agreed to accept the new position when approached by AOH members over the summer months.

     As Chaplain, Fr. Janeczko automatically becomes a Division Officer and is in charge of all ministerial aspects and functions of the organization.  Division President Kevin Ellis officially welcomed Fr. Janeczko and presented him with his badge of office along with his official AOH Chaplain’s Parade Sash.  “The entire membership is thrilled that Father Janeczko has agreed to minister to our Division” said Ellis “We believe that he will have a tremendous and positive impact on our organization going forward.”

Matt Janeczko on both Facebook and Twitter.
