Cross and Crown trademark licensing program

The Christian Science Board of Directors is happy to accept applications to license use of the Cross and Crown trademark from branch churches and societies of The Mother Church, Christian Science teachers and lecturers, Christian Science college and university organizations, and Committees on Publication. The Cross and Crown is a registered trademark of the Christian Science Board of Directors and has long been used on Mary Baker Eddy’s writings and the Christian Science periodicals to indicate The Mother Church as the authentic source of these products. As the Cross and Crown trademark is expanded and more widely used through licensing, we expect the public will become increasingly aware of it as a visual identifier of genuine Christian Science services offered in local communities by The Mother Church and its branches and other associated activities.
