Our children’s lives have been disrupted with school closures and social distancing that are happening to keep people safe and healthy. It is important to focus on helping them feel safe and let’s keep them in our prayers.

Almighty father in heaven,
I ask for your strong arms of protection .To be around our children. That they may be held safely Within your love. Fill their days and nights with hope and joy
Fill their hearts and minds
With your truth and light.
We trust in you.
Amen.

​ LAOH COUNTY BOARD NEWS… April 2020


The news reports and social distancing created by the COVID-19 coronavirus are creating anxiety for the future and our well being. In times like this, it is particularly important to remember God’s promise to be with us. He who made us, and gave his own Son for the salvation of the world, will not leave his children in this time of need. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble. Therefore we will not fear” Psalm 46:1-2

We are lucky that we were able to celebrate on Parade Day. Thank you to the AOH for the beautiful mass at St. Mary’s and to the Parade Committee for our Saint Patrick’s Day parade and celebration at Seton. Last but not least thank you to all the volunteers and those who participated in the parade.

The Broome County Board breakfast is tentatively scheduled for April 19th subject to the lifting of current restrictions. Updates will be posted on Facebook and through emails.

At the present time, The New York State spring board meeting is still scheduled for the May 1st to 3rd weekend in East Durham. NYS LAOH will keep us informed if restrictions are still in place that will result in cancellation.

The LAOH County Board meetings for 2020 will be: June 2nd, September 1st, and December 1st at 5:45pm. All LAOH members welcome! 

Yours in Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity,

Deborah Burke-President


​ DUES


  Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2020 dues. Dues paid after April 1st, they go up to $50.

  Arrears letters have been sent to all of you. We can no longer afford to carry the per capita and additional costs associated with members who choose not to pay their dues. These monies are needed to help with our charitable contributions and off set our operating costs. Your immediate attention is needed to bring your 2018 dues up-to-date. You will be deleted from our roster if payment is not received by the end of June. If anyone has difficulty paying their dues, please let us know as we take care of each other. Also, let us know if you have an address change.
