Faith In Progress

Through Catholic Action LAOH divisions are involved in over one hundred different  service projects designed to assist individuals or groups within their respective communities. We have a strong Spirituality Program that brings opportunities for personal  spiritual growth to members. Liturgies are held annually in honor of our Blessed Mother and our Patroness, St. Brigid.
