WHAT IS RAINBOW?
To become a Rainbow Girl you must be between the ages of 11 and 20 years
old. You can be the daughter or granddaughter of a Mason, Eastern Star,
Ameranth Member, the daughter of a Majority member, or a friend of a
Rainbow Girl. Most importantly you must be of good moral character and
profess an abiding faith in God.
The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is an organization for
girls between the ages of 11 and 20, and is founded on the belief in God
and the value of the lessons taught in the Holy Bible. The order was
founded in 1921 by Rev. W. Mark Sexson, a Master Mason who was Past
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma and a Past Grand Patron of
the Order of the Eastern Star.
THE TEACHINGS OF
Rainbow teaches the importance of a belief in God and the importance of
the lessons taught in the Holy Bible. Rainbow teaches leadership skills,
patriotism, and service to others. These lessons are taught in a ritual
of ceremonies which is said from memory by the members.
Rainbow Girls have fund raising, socials, visitations to other
assemblies, and charity events. Another activity is Grand Assembly,
which is held in a selected city in California in April, in which girls
can attend to learn more about the ritualistic work. Check our calendar
for upcoming events.
Any member who wishes to accept responsibility may serve as an officer.
The leader of the assembly is the Worthy Advisor, and she is elected to
a four month term in which she presides over the assembly, plans
activities, and organizes the service projects. There are also Grand
Officers who lead all of the Rainbow Girls in that jurisdiction.
Rainbow Girls have many opportunities to excel. Members can earn service
bars for attendance, ritualistic work, fund raising, membership
recruitment, visitation, and many other activities.
