What is the Order of the Eastern Star?

The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization to which both men and women belong.

It is a Masonic affiliated fraternal service organization devoted to serving the community, donating to charities, and promoting fellowship among its members. One must be a Master Mason, female relative of a Mason, or a majority or three years active Rainbow Girl or Job's Daughter.

Eastern Star is a social order comprised of persons with spiritual values but it is not a religion.

Its appeal rests in the true beauty of the refreshing and character-building lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work. A deep fraternal bond exists between its members. It is the wholesome relationship of sisterly and brotherly love, brought about through high principles, exemplified in our lives, which makes us near and dear to each other.

While this is an Order composed of people of deep Spiritual Convictions, it is open to all faiths, except no faith. The personal welfare of our members is vital to all those in the Eastern Star and it is considered a privilege to help another member whenever we can.
