  What does it all mean?

The Loyal Orange Institution is a worldwide Protestant fraternity, originally founded as the Orange Society in 1688 and firmly based in the Scriptural Truths and the propagation of the Christian Reformed Faith.

Although to the general public, we seem to appear as a marching organisation, in reality for those involved there is much more.

The basic unit of the LOI is the private lodge, which builds a pyramid structure. Each private lodge has a unique name and number, usually meeting every month, in the cities, towns, and villages of England.

At a Private lodge level the Institution provides:




4.Bible Teaching

5.Charitable Outreach opportunities

6.Various patriotic activities

7.Religious services.
