Meeting with Bishop Mark Spalding

August 7, 2020

After roughly six months of quarantine and isolation for many of the Sons of Erin Division due to COVID-19, we finally had our opportunity to meet with Bishop Spalding. This was a tremendous opportunity for the Sons of Erin to introduce themselves to the Bishop and articulate the group's intent to support his objectives across the Diocese with particular emphasis on Catholic education.

Pride in the Pit

September 27, 2019

On Friday 27 September 2019, the Sons of Erin Division of the AOH competed in the Annual Pride in the Pit BBQ contest. This was a great event that allowed the group to socialize with many others in the Father Ryan and greater diocesan community. While we didn't win the contest, a great time was had by all.
