Our Mission, Purpose and Values

Our Mission

 

The members of the Order of the Eastern Star (OES) is comprised of dedicated women and men who sincerely reflect the spirit of Fraternal Love with a desire to work together for the good of humanity.

This provides them with an opportunity to give a part of their time to community service and charity projects that benefit those individuals and communities where OES Chapters are located.

Members of the Pernella Tubbs Supreme Grand Chapter strive to take good women and men, through service and uplifting, to build an Order that is solely dedicated to Charity, Truth, and Loving Kindness.

OES Purpose, Principles and Values

 

The purpose of our Order is to provide a female companion Chapter to cooperate with the Lodge of Free Masons, since women cannot join the Masonic Lodge.

The principles are personified by five stories of women taken from the Holy Bible. They are fidelity, obedience, loyalty, truth, and heroic endurance. These principles are five in number, representing the five degrees.

OES Values

 

One of the most significant values of the OES is that of education, community service, and charitable work. It is important for members of the OES contribute to improving the quality of life for those less fortunate, hungry or needing support and assistance.

Become a Member of the OES

Joining the Order of the Eastern Star is open to women, 21 years of age or older, who may or may not be related to Masons in good standing. Male members of the OES must be IFAMM Master Masons in good standing within their local lodge, submit an application that is signed by the Worthy Matron, their Worshipful Master and approved by the Grand Master of the State.

Once you have made a decision to become a member, the first step is to submit a Petition to Become a Member of the OES and let them know of your interest. Someone will contact you and follow up to schedule a meeting time and place. We will search for a local chapter in your area or if you are interested in forming one, you will need to mobilize six other women in good standing and submit a Petition to Become a Member.

We applaud your interest and hope to call you "Sister" soon.
