Eastern Orthodox Priests

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

There is no certification or licensing for Eastern Orthodox priests. Those who work as chaplains in hospitals, hospices, and the military can become certified by the Association of Professional Chaplains. In some jurisdictions, a priest may need to register in order to be eligible to perform marriages. Registration typically involves paying a small fee and demonstrating membership in the clergy of one’s faith.
