Respect Life Sunday Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral

Yonkers AOH Attends Respect Life Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral

AOH Members Assemble on the steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral

     Sunday, October 4th was dedicated as Respect Life Sunday within The Archdiocese of New York, and once again The Ancient Order of Hibernians in partnership with The Sisters of Life Religious Order were sponsors of the Respect Life Mass that was held at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City.

Division #1 Yonkers was well represented within the AOH contingent

     Over 100 AOH members attended the mass, and were warmly greeted by Celebrant and Rector of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Reverend Monsignor Robert T. Richie.  This also marked the first opportunity for many AOH members to view the Cathedral after undergoing a 150 Million Dollar renovation which was completed a month earlier.  The interior of The Cathedral presented a display of magnificent brilliance, a result from all of the work that was painstakingly done.

     Monsignor Ritchie reminded all in attendance of the recent visit by Pope Francis the previous week, and prayed that his presence would help bring about greater respect for the sanctity of all human life.

     Member of The Myles Scully Division #1 of Yonkers were also proud to present The Sisters of life with a donation to help them with the very important work that they do.  A total of 20 members from Yonkers were able to attend the mass.

     The Irish have a proud and storied history when it comes to America’s Labor movement.  Indeed, whenever and wherever there was a struggle for workers rights, the Irish were there, dating back to the early days of the Pennsylvania Coal Miners Unions to the present day efforts to secure living wages and pension protections for America’s workforce.

The Irish Labor 10 Awards Sponsored by The Irish Echo Newspaper

     The Irish Echo newspaper held its “Irish Labor 10” Awards ceremony in Manhattan on September 25th to celebrate today’s Irish Labor leaders, as well as to remember those workers and leaders of the labor movement in the past whose struggles and sacrifices have given all of us certain workplace rights that we have come to enjoy today.

John Sullivan presents Labor Award to AOH Yonkers Member David Miller

     The entire membership of AOH Division #1 Yonkers was thrilled to learn that one of our members, David Miller, was chosen as one of the 10 Award Recipients that evening.  David is the past President of The International Laborers Union Local #60 at Yonkers Raceway.  David has been a proud member of The Ancient Order of Hibernians for over 15 years.  "David has always had a tremendous pride when it comes to his Irish heritage,” said Division President Kevin Ellis, “He always volunteers to carry our Division Banner in every St. Patrick’s Day Parade we participate in.”  David also is a major contributor to the local Hibernian Charities program through his work on the organization’s golf outing every year.

Irish Labor 10 Award presented to David Miller

     The Guest Speakers for the awards ceremony were Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams and LiUNA President Terry O’Sullivan.  We would like to thank The Irish Echo Newspaper for recognizing David’s life long contribution to labor rights as well as his work towards local charities, and we extend well deserved congratulations to David Miller and his family.  His accomplishments are something we can all be proud of!
