Order of the Beauceant
One of the brochures of the SOOB reads: "the Social Order of the Beauceant is an organization of Christian women
The S.O.O.B. essentially is an auxiliary of the Knights Templar. The society sees its basic objective as promoting 'loyal friendship among the wives and widows of the Knights Templar and to aid the Commanderies when requested to do so'. The order also supports the Knights Templar by contributing to the Knights Templar Eye Foundation.
Like its male counterpart, the Knights Templar, the S.O.O.B.
has a ritual which it deems 'beautiful, impressive,
and helpful in every day life...' The theme of the ritual is 'Faith, Loyalty,
and Love for God, the Order of Knights Templar and each other.' The order has
around 6,000 members.
