In our motto,
Good afternoon. I write to inform you of an amazing opportunity that I have put in place for our order, and ties in with our core beliefs and Motto.
The Ancient Order of Hibernians have been requested to assist as volunteers at the Mass celebrated by Pope Francis in Madison Square Garden on Friday evening September 25, 2015. I have sent this to you and ask that you distribute it to Hibernians in your Division, County and District. There is more information included below, but expect it to be a long day and to be on your feet most of the day. Hibernians will arrive at Madison Square Garden at 11:00 AM on the 25th of September. I request that all Hibernian volunteers wear suitable attire, dark suit and tie preferred. I am not sure if we will be wearing sashes or not during the Mass, but if you bring them we can wear them for a picture prior to or afterwards. We will need to help get the people seated and organize the flow of +/- 20,000 people for communion.
I apologize for the urgency, but we We really need to move fast on this. We need to compile a list of volunteers with e-mail contact information and phone numbers and turn them in to the committee by the middle of this week. All volunteers will be contacted and asked to fill out a credentials form which needs to be issued by Friday 8/15/15.
There will be a Rehearsal on Tuesday night 8/18/15 at 6:00 PM for the volunteers at Madison Square Garden.
