Structure

While the Church of the Mother was a state religion it was led by a group of high priests that were seated at the large Chapel in the capital of Nam. The High priests were appointed by the president of the country and also acted as that person's advisors. The high priests appointed the priests from the apprentices and these priests were seated in the chapels spread across Oskad were they led the flocks living there.   Today the Church of the Mother has a small group of high priests that are appointed by the members of the religion. The high priests are still situated in the capital however there are now even fewer chapels where the regular priests are situated. Now many regular priests are also situated in the capital chapel. Being a priest is no longer sustainable as a job so many priests also have a part-time job.
