There were certainly Klingon clerics on Boreth, at the monastery that was established by the followers of Kahless. Whatever else they did, they created a clone of Kahless. :-) It seems that their duty was to await Kahless' return, to remember and tell stories about him in the meantime, and to guide or advise others in spiritual matters. I have usually thought of the particular clerics portrayed in the TNG episode "Rightful Heir" as religious leaders/guides, which is an idea I think the Klingon phrase lalDan DevwI' captures well.
