History was made over the weekend with a first for an Orange lodge in Northern Ireland.
On Saturday past (7th September) Benvarden Lodge made history when one of its Chaplaincy Team became the first Orangeman in Northern Ireland to pass the Chaplaincy Course.
The course, which was offered by the Grand Lodge of England, was passed by the lodge member who has now received their Chaplain’s Certificate.
Not only the first in Northern Ireland, but the second only Orangeman in the world to receive such qualification.
This certificate is accredited by the highly respected Cranmer Memorial Bible College & Seminary.
