Looking for a minister?
Find your local congregation: You can use the contact information for the nearest congregation to reach out and ask if they have any ministers who are available for ceremonies. Include as much detail as you can about the ceremony you want when you reach out to the congregation, or you will be less likely to get a response.
Salem Art Gallery: The headquarters of The Satanic Temple in Salem, MA, is comprised of an art gallery, several rooms of oddities and information pertaining to Satanism and the Satanic panic, and a large event space that you can rent as a venue for events. If you are willing to travel, and would like your wedding or other ceremony to take place in this gorgeous and significant venue, reach out to the Salem Art Gallery to see what is available.
Attend Satanic Services: The Satanic Temple Ministry holds online religious services twice every week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. This is a perfect way to hear our ministers discuss important religious topics, and to interact with other members of our community.
