On November 10, 2003, we proudly established a Junior Division at Bishop Canevin High School in Pittsburgh, PA. Bishop Canevin became the first school in Allegheny County to have a junior chapter of the Ancient Order of Hibernians. Ten students of Irish heritage became the founding members of our chapter.

Our members march proudly each year behind our Division banner in the Pittsburgh St. Patrick’s Day Parade and hold an annual Communion Breakfast Mass honoring our Hibernian of the Year and Service Award winners.
We invite to join us and live our motto of “Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity.”
