I have recently entered the stream.  I also keep a Buddhist Shrine.  If I keep but ten Precepts, can I consider myself a Buddhist Priest?

In our tradition we don't have priests. We have Buddhist monks. If you mean, can you be considered a monk by keeping the ten precepts then the answer is no. You need to go through the appropriate training and ordination to become a monk.
