Ladies Orders

Amaranth

Order of the Amaranth is a Masonic-affiliated women`s organization founded in 1873.   As in the Order of the Eastern Star, members of the Order must be age 18 and older; men must be Master Masons; and women must be related to Masons as wives, mothers, daughters, widows, sisters, nieces, aunts, et cetera, or have been active members of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls or Job`s Daughters International for more than three years and be recommended by a Master Mason.

Amaranth was based on Queen Christina of Sweden`s court.   Christina had created the "Order of the Amarantha" for the ladies and knights of her court.   In 1860, James B. Taylor of Newark, New Jersey drew upon this order to create a new fraternal society.

In the Order`s teachings, the members are emphatically reminded of their duties to God, to their country and to their fellow beings.   They are urged to portray, by precept and example, their belief in the "Golden Rule" and by conforming to the virtues inherent in Truth, Faith, Wisdom and Charity they can prove to others the goodness promulgated by the Order.

Job's  Daughters

Job's Daughters International is a Masonic sponsored youth organization for girls aged 10 to 20.   The organization is commonly referred to as simply Job`s Daughters or Jobies, and is sometimes abbreviated and referred to as JDI (or IOJD, the original initialism).

Job`s daughters is focused on the Holy Bible but celebrates and welcomes many religions and cultures.

Founded in 1920 by Mrs. Ethel T. Wead Mick, Job`s Daughters International is an organization of young women with members in the United States, Canada, Australia, the Philippines and Brazil.

Members have fun together at activities such as swimming parties, dances, family picnics, slumber parties, miniature golf, marching in parades and so much more.   In Job`s Daughters you will make new friends that will last a lifetime.

Job`s Daughters perform service projects to help their community and the less fortunate.

Job`s Daughters can qualify for various scholarships that are offered on a state and national level.   We also gain valuable leadership experience, serve as part of a team, and learn democratic principles as they run their own meetings, decide our own activities, and plan our own events.

In short, Job`s Daughters International offers the qualities that today`s young women want and need from organizations that earn their commitment: fun, friendship, helping others and the chance to learn organizational and leadership skills.

Rainbow  Girls

The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls (IORG) is a Masonic youth service organization which teaches leadership training through community service.

Order  of  The  Eastern  Star

The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world that both men and women can join.   It was established in 1850 by Rob Morris, a lawyer and educator from Boston, Massachusetts, who had been an official with the Freemasons.

The Order of the Eastern Star is based on teachings from the Bible, but is open to people of all monotheistic faiths.   It has approximately 10,000 chapters in twenty countries and approximately one million members under its General Grand Chapter.   Members of the Order are aged 18 and older; men must be Master Masons and women must have specific relationships with Masons. Originally, a woman would have to be the daughter, widow, wife, sister, or mother of a master Mason, but the Order now allows other relatives as well as allowing Rainbow Girls, Triangle Girls, and Job`s Daughters to become members when they become of age.
