D. Sheba Brown: “Masonic Craft A Christian Organization”

Sheba Brown, the newly inducted General Grand Worthy Matron, General Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star (OES) of the Masonic Temple, says the Masonic Craft is a Christian organization that is mostly involved in charity but does not broadcast their activities to the public.

Madam Brown made those statements at the Masonic Temple, on December 21, 2018, at the program making the 90th annual session and the installation of the General Grand officers of the OES.

“Our organization is the Order of the Eastern Stars, a fraternity and is closely related with the Masonic Craft. We are wives, daughters, mothers and sisters of masons. To be a member of the OES, you must have a Masonic link,” she said.

Madam Brown thanked the General Grand Chapter for the preferment and pledged her unflinching support for the enhancement and promotion of their noble order.

She said hers is the first public installation to take place and is intended to dispel the myths that some people have about the fraternity.

“The reasons of the Order are spiritual, the teaching is moral, and the purposes are beneficent. Its obligations are based upon honor of the female sex who obtain it ceremonies and performed base on the principals that whatever benefits I due by the Masonic Fatality to the wives, widows, daughters and sisters of Masons correspondingly benefits I due from them to the brotherhood,” Madam said.

Madam Brown said “We declare or believe the existences of a supreme being who will sooner or later punish the willful violators of his sudden pledge. Our moral virtues are adopted on integrity, devotion and respect to the bounding force of a vow; loyalty and devotion to religious principles, justice courage and fatality to……friends.”

“The Masonic was established ten years before the establishment of the OES. The Masonic craft is thunder years and we are ninety years old,” she said.

Freemasonry or Masonry consists of fraternal organizations that trace their origins to the local fraternities of stonemasons, which from the end of the fourteenth century regulated the qualifications of stonemasons and their interaction with authorities and clients.
