Historical Note

The Pythian Sisters is a fraternal order with members throughout the United States and Canada. They honor the Holy Bible and all religions but are aligned with none. The Flags of the United States and Canada have important roles in the order's meetings but have no political agenda. The work of the Pythian Sisters covers a broad field. It is not confined to the local Temple nor to the field of Pythianism. The Pythian Sisters organization, in addition to its beautiful, meaningful ritualistic work, is engaged in altruistic efforts second to none among women's organizations.
