Priests of the Church of Belief Science are members of the church, and by nature of their priesthood, they are considered certified to teach Belief Science ideals and to perform any ceremonies or rituals requested by Church members, consistent with the Canons of the Church.
Priests, women and men, may marry or enter loving partnerships and have children. They may have secondary careers, but their primary vocational obligation is to the Church of Belief Science.
To become a priest, one must pass a thorough examination over Church philosophy and practices and demonstrate proficiency in directing ceremonies of the Church, especially the "Contextual Centering Process" exercise. Exams will be written and in some cases oral. Video or audio tapes of example ceremonial presentations may be required. Also, since the Church values education, ideally priests will have, or will be in the process of attaining, a higher education. One must also show evidence of a history free of crimes against children or humanity.
Priests operate freely and are not typically employed by the Church. Priest must abide by, uphold, and teach the Canons of the Church. They must not misrepresent the Canons of the Church or present themselves as Church officials.
