How do I join?

The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal Order in the world that admits both men and women to membership.  We hope that you will let us know of your interest and join us in our work helping our communities, enjoying fellowship in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust, and promoting Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.  While all our members must have a belief in the existence of a positive Supreme Being, we are accepting of all different religions that share this belief and count persons of many different faiths among our members.

  • Who may join:
    • Men who are Master Masons in good standing of a regular Lodge of the Masonic Fraternity.
    • Women who are relatives of past or present Master Masons in good standing of a regular Lodge of the Masonic fraternity and have reached the age of 18. The necessary relationship is by birth, marriage, or adoption.
    • Women who are majority members of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls® or Job’s Daughters International® and who have reached the age of 18.

To find out more about joining our Order, please use our Chapter locator (Find a Chapter) to find the Chapters closest to your home or work.  The Chapter locator will give you contact information for the Secretaries of those Chapters and you can e-mail one or more of them to let them know of your interest in joining us.

Thank you for your interest in our Order and we hope to soon greet you as a member.
