Scientology ministers perform many of the same types of ceremonies and services that ministers, rabbis and priests of other religions perform.

Worship Services

Each Sunday, and sometimes on other days of the week as well, the Church’s Chaplain or another minister conducts a public worship service which is open to both members and non-members of the Church.

These services comprise a recitation of the Creed of Scientology, sermons, congregational auditing and prayer. As such they provide an occasion for everyone to commune with the Infinite and revitalize one spiritually.


In addition Scientology congregations celebrate weddings and namings with their own formal ceremonies and mark the passing of their fellows with funeral rites.

Scientology services, which address spirituality and God in accordance with the religion’s teachings, impart a special quality to these occasions.
