165th Celebration

On Sunday, April 25, 2010 members of St. James Lodge No.2 and their family members assembled at the Morgan Christian Center, located on the campus of Morgan State University to celebrate the lodge's 165th birthday.  St. James Lodge No.2 is the second oldest lodge in the Maryland Jurisdiction, having records of it holding lodge meetings since before the conclusion of the American Civil War. 

A homecoming of sorts for several of the lodge's members; Seymour Chambers and Vance Young, and a great chance to worship for others, the visit was well accepted by both students and ministerial staff. 

The well attended service were a marvelous inspiration to all in attendance.
