The Order of The Eastern Star is the largest Fraternal Organization in the world to which both women and men can belong. Its objectives and purpose are the cultivation of charitable and fraternal practices and to maintain an institution for its worthy members. The fundamental principle of membership is an obligation to aid and assist fellow members in time of need. Like other Masonic related organizations, the Order of the Eastern Star uses emblems and symbolism to teach moral lessons we use as a guide to make our lives more useful, both to ourselves and to others.
The Order of 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 character-building lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work. A deep fraternal bond exists between its members.
