OUR HISTORY

The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians can trace it's roots to fourteenth century Ireland when the Irish Catholics banded together to protect the Catholic Church and Faith during the Penal Laws.

In the America, during the 19th century, the LAOH was originated as a auxillary to assist new Irish immigrants, take a stand against the Know-Nothings and once again to Protect the Catholic Church and Country.

1991, Pat Rossiter Koloski  started our division .  She gathered 22 women who then applied membership.  New Jersey State President Rose Langan installed our first officers at our hall and guided us through our first meeting. 

Today, we are no longer an auillary.  We are still protecting the Catholic Church,Faith and Country.  We are still promoting peace and love through Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity.  We are proud to be Irish-Catholic Americans!
