Holmes Institute


Holmes Institute, not to be confused with the academic Holmes Institute in Australia is an in-house progam for Religious Science ministers who are part of the United Religious Science denomination and intend to take a pulpit in their system.
Holmes Institute offers inhouse denominational training

Roots descending to Ernest Holmes' creation of a school of Religious Science in Los Angeles, the present Holmes Institute is the educational arm of the United Church of Religious Science. This particular denomination is expanding through absorbing the other Religious Science denominations and thus the Holmes Institute may soon be their only educational vehicle.

This "Masters Degree in Conscious Studies" is an in-house degree for their denomination's candidates.
