Welcome to Eastern Star in California! If you are looking for a way to do something for others, and have a great time in the process, you are at the right place. We are a fraternal organization that is always on the lookout for adults of all ages who are trying to better themselves and the community around them. Please look below for what we believe in.
We strive to live our lives by the enduring beliefs of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth, along with certain core values:
Friendship: We are the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both women and men can belong. With Chapters in almost all 50 states and in 27 countries around the world, members can go anywhere and know that they can find friends and a helpful hand when they’re in need.
Community Service: We encourage our members not only to help one another, but also to reach out to their communities. Members are active in many community-based projects for those requiring assistance.
Diversity: The members of our Order reflect the social, cultural, educational, ethnic, and religious diversity of the community around them. We value each other’s strengths and opinions.
Charity: As an organization, we raise funds for aid to our members in need, in addition to cancer and heart research, college/university scholarships for students regardless of age or membership status, as well as other charities. We also fund and operate a Senior Living Community for our older members who belong to California Chapters.
The Order of the Eastern Star is a fraternal organization of men and women committed to providing an environment of friendship and fellowship, regardless of age, by implementing innovative ideas, facilitating positive change and planning for the future, while working cohesively with our Masonic Family.
While we are a separate organization, we are connected to the Family of Freemasonry, and as such have certain membership requirements. Women who are related to a Master Mason in specific ways are eligible as well as being Majority members of the of Job's Daughters International or the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls. Men must be Master Masons in good standing to be eligible. We ask that you believe in a Supreme Being, be at least 18 years old and a resident of California, adhere to the laws of our Country, and not have been convicted of a felony. If you feel that you qualify and are interested, you are welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be happy to help you with the next steps.
