In How The West Was One, Vancelai Du Tumerine (of the Nolos Du Tumerine's) was invited to become the (Rokari) Bishop of Malkonwal by Rikard when he took over. I'm not sure this necessarily helps (or even necessarily holds true in "canon" Glorantha)

HQp158 says "Liturgists are not automatically clergymen, and many have just enough learning to read their scriptures [...]increasingly in the West the magical duties of liturgists are separated from the occupational duties of the Clergy" So an educated lay member could act as a liturgist on holy days and fulfil their normal occupational duties the rest of the time

If Father Theoberdt is an Orderly rather than a Wizard, then he could also be a liturgist (and would certainly want access to one to recharge his talismans). The rulebook doesn't specifically mention Adept Liturgists, but I don't see anything that prohibits them either
