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.
