Welcome to Bergen County, NJ AOH   
Father Solanus Casey Division # 32

10t10 10th Anniversary: 2007 - 201717

Our group was established in River Edge, NJ.   AOH State officials swore in our members during a ceremony that took place in Jersey City on June 8, 2007.  Our Chapter has grown to over 100 members from all around Bergen County. We are dedicated to uniting Irish Catholic men in Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity.  We are an active organization involved in a variety of charitable and social events throughout the year.

Our Patron - Fr. Solanus Casey 

Our patron is Fr. Solanus Casey, a humble priest, who dedicated his life for the poor, lonely, and suffering of the world.  The Catholic Church is considering Fr. Solanus, who was born in Wisconsin to Irish immigrant parents, for sainthood.  His canonization would make him the first American male born saint.  For more information about Fr. Solanus Casey and the cause for his canonization please visit: http://www.solanuscasey.org/
