In its teachings, the members are emphatically reminded of their duties to God, to their country and to their fellow beings.

The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which men and women may belong. It encircles the earth with over 10,000 Chapters in the United States, Canada and 18 other countries.
