How We are Organized

  • The celestial beings overseeing the Faithist Covenant are Mir Mahvar and Mir Salazar.
  • The General Council of the Worldwide Faithist Association consists of Mir Tazar, the Chief Rabbah, the Rabban, Rabbah’s personal priest, and an additional priest.
  • The Chief Rabbah is the spiritual leader of the Faithist Community and administrator of the Faithist Covenant. The Chief Rabbah serves as the High Priest. This responsibility has been appointed to Rabbah Rish’kahni. He is a longtime Priest, Prophet, Oahspe Bible instructor, and is experienced in the practice of suis and sargis.
  • Next in the order of clerics is the Rabban. The Rabban is appointed by suggestion of the Chief Rabbah and authorized by Mir Mahvar and Mir Salazar.
  • The Chief Rabbah’s Priest is a priest who has been appointed to serve as the personal Priest of the Chief Rabbah. This personal Priest keeps the Rabbah in his prayers, lighting candles on his behalf, and reminding the faithful to keep Rabbah in their prayers, writing simple prayers on Rabbah’s behalf for his safe keeping and similar work. Fr. Shamon serves as His Holiness’ Personal Priest.
  • Fr. Jonathan serves on the General Council, and since November 2017 as senior editor of the Kosmon Herald magazine and publications director.
  • A congregation priest (sometimes called a “lodge priest”) is man or woman who takes care of the liturgical life of the congregation, such as conducting various services and rites.
  • A deacon is a man or woman who has been appointed to serve the various needs of the congregation, and to assist the priest.
  • A lay-priest or lay-deacon may be required for a period of time while he/she is in training or when a congregation is so large that it requires others to assist in various functions of the congregation. A lay-deacon is often appointed when there are no qualified priests or regular deacons to serve the congregation.
  • Our service book is a revised edition of the 1938 version. Congregations may wish to use the revised edition or the original from 1938.
