Annual Founders' Day at Jessenland

Sunday, May 3, 2009

On this fine spring day, Ancient Order of Hibernians from across the State of Minnesota met at St. Thomas Church in Jessenland. At this gathering, the divisions celebrated Founders Day and admitted new members to our Order.

Jessenland, being the site of the oldest Irish settlement in Minnesota, gives a sense of history and struggle that befits the celebration of Founders Day. The day was well attended by our local members, families and clergy.

Following the Shamrock Degree Instruction and Induction Ceremony, Catholic mass was co-celebrated by Fr. Berger and Fr. Salsburg.
