Anne Arundel County, Division 1, Annapolis was organized in February, 1981. Our group of active members, including two charter members, strives to nourish our Irish heritage and Catholic Faith.
Our charities include the Columban Fathers and Sisters, the Sisters of Mercy, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, the Lighthouse Shelter, Birthright and the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Our primary fundraiser is our annual Christmas Bazaar which is held the weekend before Thanksgiving. We have tables for religious goods, baked items, Christmas decorations, Irish and handmade items as well as re-giftables and raffles.

On Good Friday, we participate along with fifteen area churches and organizations in the Way of the Cross at Manresa, an ecumenical service. Many of our LAOH sisters from other divisions join us on this day.

We have social events and partner with our AOH brothers for some of them. We march in the Annapolis and the Baltimore City St. Patrick’s Day Parades. We have dinners, dances, potluck suppers and visit various religious and historical sites.

We are proud of our Junior LAOH members and enjoy watching them progress as they advance in their Irish dance lessons.

Our monthly business meetings are held at 10 a.m. following the 9 a.m. Mass. We always welcome new members.
