We ask that you stress the importance of the Order’s long-standing ceremony and the obligation each member must live by its great motto. As we continue to strive to strengthen the foundation, the sponsors of the event hope to increase the number of degreed brothers and bring together divisions from around the state and celebrate our Catholic - Irish heritage. Our goal is that each of us join and unify through a special unity as Hibernians and end the day as a stronger more unified Brotherhood. At the time when you were initially sworn into your division and took the oath, you promised "you would learn the lessons and take the test of the Order”. Now is the time to fulfill that promise.
