Our goal as a Grand Chapter is to bind together all who are entitled to its privileges, mutually aid and assist in sickness and distress and to inculcate the principles of morality and friendship, as exemplified by the lives of the Heroines of our Rite. To encourage faith in God and His works, sisterly love and a devotion to the benevolent and charitable service of our Order.
