Description
Certificate presented to one Charles R. McCabe which authorized his operation of an Orange Lodge in Aylmer. Presented in Toronto on September 5th, 1953, by J.E. Cloney, Grand Master of Brtitish America. This was to establish the Loyal Orange Lodge no. 3233. Displayed in gold-painted wooden frame and overlaid with glass. Full text: "Most Worshipful Grand Orange Lodge of British North America. Instituted by Imperial Warrant, A.D. 1832, Incorporated by Parliament of Canada, A.D. 1890. No. 3233. By Virtue of this Dispensation Charles R. McCabe and his successors in office are hereby authorized and empowered to open and work a Primary Orange Lodge at Aylmer in the Province of Ontario to be known as Loyal Orange Lodge Number 3233 and to act as Worshipful Master thereof; and this Dispensation shall remain in full force and effect until a regular Incorporated Warrant shall have been issued. Given under my hand at Toronto this 15th day of September, A.D. 1953. J.E. Cloney, Grand Master of British America." The Orange Order began as a Protestant fraternal order in Northern Ireland. It was founded in 1795 during a period of Protestant-Catholic conflict, as a Masonic-style fraternity sworn to maintain the Protestant Ascendancy. The name Loyal Orange Lodge is a tribute to the Dutch-born King William of Orange, who defeated the army of Catholic King James II. Irish-born Protestant immigrants brought the Orange Order to British North America. The first recorded Lodge formed in, what is now Canada, was in New Brunswick in 1873. While initially dominated by Irish Protestants, the Orange Order quickly accepted English, Scottish, German, and First Nations members, as well as some United Empire Loyalists. Members in Canada proudly defended Protestantism and the British connection, while providing mutual aid. Financial support was provided to members during times of illness or unemployment, and upon a member’s death, the Order often helped to alleviate the financial burden on widows and orphans by covering funeral costs and burial fees. Fraternal association was reinforced through the rituals, ceremonies, initiations, passwords, and by wearing Orange sashes in council sessions and parades. The mission statement of the Loyal Orange Lodge is working together for Family, Community and Country. The Grand Orange Lodge stands for Democratic Government, Promoting and Maintaining the Protestant Faith, The Public School Concept, Supporting the Monarchy, Supremacy of Law, and a United Canada. The purpose of the Orange Lodge in Canada is to encourage its members to actively participate in a Protestant Church of their choice, to actively support the Canadian system of government, to anticipate legislation and its impact on the civil and religious liberties of all Canadians, to provide social activities that will enrich the lives of its members, and to participate in Benevolent activities which enrich our communities and our country. Grand Orange of Canada Family Members include Loyal Orange Lodge (L.O.L), Royal Black Institution in Canada (R.B.P.), Ladies Orange Benevolent Association (L.O.B.A.), Loyal True Blue (L.T.B.), Junior Orange Lodge (J.O.L.). Aylmer The Aylmer Lodge of the Loyal Orange Lodge No. 423 was instituted in 1890.
