Ancient Order of Hibernians - Michigan State Board
The Ancient Order of Hibernians is America’s oldest Irish Catholic Fraternal Organization founded concurrently in the coal-mining region of Pennsylvania and New York City in May, 1836. The Order can trace its roots back to a series of similar societies that existed in Ireland for more than 300 years. The AOH Michigan State Board represents the 12 AOH divisions spread throughout the state of Michigan. The board meets quarterly, on various published dates, and officers and members of all divisions are encouraged to attend these meetings.
The every other year AOH / LAOH Michigan State Convention will be held in Flint at the Gateway Hotel & Suites in Flint. See the registration & convention information details in the Activities/Photo Gallery tab on this website. Please consider attending. We would like to see representation from all state divisions!
To be a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH), one must be a male, 16 years or older, be of Irish birth or descent, and be a practicing Catholic. However, any clergy need not be Irish by birth or descent. Women are welcome in the associated Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians (LAOH) as well. Need more info?
