for practical reasons

The Lutheran congregations employed priests for practical reason, such as conducting services and attending to the daily clerical tasks.

I suppose the meaning of 'practical' in example sentence is 'obtaining actual profit'.
Am i right?

Please, I need you help!

    Nothing to do with profit.
    It's this one:
    made or suited for use;
    useful:A station wagon is a practical car for a family.
    The church employs priests because it is useful.
