Every year during the past few years or so, along with March 17 (Saint Patrick’s Day) in honor of our Protestant heritage against the antichrist Roman Catholic Church, we celebrate “The 12th,” an Orange Day celebration commemorating William of Orange’s stand against the Roman Catholics on July 12, 1690, where he defeated the antichrist Roman Catholic forces at the Battle of the Boyne (see the “Antichrist” section on our “Soul Info” page regarding our belief that the Pope and Roman Catholic Church are the Antichrist and religious system of Antichrist).
It’s a time a fellowship and fun for the group here, and we enjoy gathering in all of our orange regalia….

We are thankful to the Lord for all of His provisions; for granting His word to be available to us in our native tongue; for this time of peace where we are not killed by antichrist for having a Bible in our own language; for all of the Protestants of the past and their stands — including to death — against antichrist — the Pope and the Roman Church — may we stand against antichrist equally as faithful; and for the opportunity to gather in Christ’s name as brethren.
