When you were sworn in you agreed to take the “lessons of the order.” These lessons are the Major Degree. It is the highest degree a Hibernian can receive and provides the lessons that define our Organization and its purpose. There is no prior studying required, it is only a few hours, is a prerequisite for holding an AOH office and worth 5 points on your child’s scholarship application. Those who have taken it have found it a worthwhile experience. A Major Degree Ceremony will be held at the Pearl River Hilton on Saturday July 16th, it will never be closer nor more convenient. There is no cost to those taking the degree. Contact Neil Cosgrove at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
