Welcome to Bergen County, NJ AOH
Father Solanus Casey Division # 32
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 70 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 - Blessed Solanus Casey
Our patron is Blessed Solanus Casey, a humble priest, who dedicated his life for the poor, lonely, and suffering of the world. Fr. Solanus, who was born in Wisconsin to Irish immigrant parents, was beatified on November 18, 2017 in Detroit. His canonization will make him the first American male born saint. For more information about Blessed Solanus Casey and the cause for his canonization please visit: http://www.solanuscasey.org/
