The Order of the Eastern
Welcome to New Caney Chapter No.
Order of the Eastern
What It Is: The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization
in the world to which both women and men may belong. Worldwide, there are over
500,000 members under the General Grand Chapter
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 refreshing and
character-building lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work.
A deep fraternal bond exists between its members. It is the wholesome relationship
of sisterly and brotherly love brought about through high principles exemplified in
our lives which makes us near and dear to each other.
While this is an Order composed of people of deep spiritual convictions, it is open
to all faiths, except no faith. The personal welfare of our members is vital to all
of those in the Eastern Star, and it is considered a privilege to help another
member whenever we can.
Purposes: The stated purposes of the organization are: Charitable, Educational,
Fraternal and Scientific; but there is much more to it than that. Dr. Rob Morris,
the Poet Laureate of Masonry, founded the Order using the beautiful and inspiring
Biblical examples of heroic conduct and moral values. These portray the noble
principles which should adorn the personal lives of Eastern Star members. Eastern
Star strives to take good people and through uplifting and elevating associations
of love and service, and through precept and example build an Order which is truly
dedicated to charity, truth and loving kindness.
Projects: Concrete evidence of the charitable nature of the organization as it
affects others is the millions of dollars which have been raised within the
membership to support national, jurisdictional, and local charities. Many Grand
Jurisdictions have homes for their senior members.
