Welcome To Oregon's Amaranth Website

The Order of the Amaranth is a fraternal and philanthropic organization comprised of both men and women with Masonic affiliation. The Order is organized into three levels or jurisdictions. A local group of members is known as a “Subordinate Court”. The presiding officer is a woman who is elected by the members and has the title of “Royal Matron.” She is advised and escorted by the “Royal Patron” who is also elected. Together with a corps of elected and appointed officers, they conduct the monthly meetings, activities and fund raising efforts of the subordinate court.

Scripture: "Ecclesiastes 3:1-9 To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which has been planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and time of peace. What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?"
