The Luxembourg Brotherhood of America is the oldest Luxembourg-American organization in the United States. It was founded in 1887 as a fraternal organization on Chicago’s south side. Today, it consists of four sections located in the Chicago area and is dedicated to maintaining strong ties between the Grand Duchy and its American emigrants.
The Brotherhood holds the following events each year:
- an annual Mass celebrating Our Lady of Consolation, Patroness of Luxembourg
- Sauerbraten Dinner in the Spring
- the National Convention in May
- the National Day in June
- the Schobermesse in the Fall
Section 15 is led by dedicated descendants of Luxembourg’s immigrants to the north and northwest suburbs of Chicago. Our Section meets quarterly on the second Wedsnesday of April, July and October. In January, there is the annual dinner and installation of officers. In the spring, there is the famous Sauerbraten Dinner with raffles, door prizes, the Wheel of Sausage and dancing.
