It is perfectly possible since lay member status doesn't come with any
serious obligations. The cults are basically incompatible since the Pavis
cult keeps the Law in the city, and the Lanbril cult breaks it.

If the character is culturally Lunar, he will most certainly worship the
Seven Mothers, or at least some of them, and definitely in the temple of
the Seven Mothers, since that's the only Lunar Religious Centre in Prax. If
he is sincerely devout or has a mystic slant he would pilgrimage to
Moonbroth as well.

The cult of the Seven Mothers as presented *is* a frontier religion, but
Pavis *is* the frontier, so the character won't have much of a choice if he
doesn't feel like rejecting his religion.

If he worships Yelm or Lodril or some other Pelorian gods he won't find a
lot of worship ceremonies to participate in to gain or regain divine magic.
Of course, he or his family probably has a private shrine at home to
perform the ceremonies for his or their spiritual wellbeing.
