Is she? The Sister's Army isn't particularly known for doing combined operations on her own and arguments that she must have Fereshori in her radiance are to me redolent of the kitchen sink approach of Lanbril.

Plenty of other armies have been effective without Lunar vexillia - even the Lunar Army didn't have them when they defeated the Carmanians.

Given that we already have large doses of earth worship in Hwarin Dalthippa and HonEel the Artess, I'm leery about making the Sister's Army yet another haven for Earth Worshippers.

Looking at ILH-2, it seems to me the rule is that denominations are assigned to radiances and there is no spillover. If Fereshor is in the Moon Army Radiance then all Fereshori are in that radiance while all Yanafal Vestara are part of the Seven Mothers Radiance.
