Royal Black Preceptories

 
   
Although Carrickfergus does not have a Royal Black District Chapter three Royal Black Preceptories meet in our geographical area and use the same halls as our Orange Lodges.

Lily Among The Thorns RBP 236

RBP 236 is one of many Preceptories that constitute Larne District Royal Black Chapter which in turn is part of County Antrim Grand Black Chapter. The Preceptory meets in the King William III Memorial Orange Hall, Carrickfergus and mainly draws its members from Royal Arch Purple Chapters that meet in the same hall. This Preceptory over the years has supplied many County and District Officers and the current Worshipful District Master of Larne District Royal Black Chapter is a member of RBP 236
