From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
The Creed Temporal is a body of the Adeptus Ministorum. It is the logistics and financial agency of the Ecclesiarchy, responsible for collecting dues from the faithful, building and maintaining cathedrals as well as other Ministorum buildings, and organizing tasks such as pilgrimages. The agency is maintained by Deacons, each of whom serves within a diocese much like a Cardinal.
