Katie Holmes Returns To Catholic Church
Posted: 07/09/2012 1:09 pm Updated: 07/09/2012 1:17 pm
Five years after revealing that she had started to study Scientology, Katie Holmes has officially returned to the Catholic faith, registering as a parishioner at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York City.
“Everyone is thrilled to have Katie join us,” a member of the church’s choir told me. “She has not yet attended a service, but when she does she will be welcomed with open arms.”
The church, located on 16th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, is known for inclusive thinking and its welcoming of many gay and lesbian Catholics.
In this, that New York parish differs from elsewhere in the United States Roman Catholic Church. But also certainly from Tom Cruise, from other Scientologist movie stars, and from Scientology.
Its mission statement indicates that the Roman Catholic Church parish “strives to be a prophetic, welcoming community, inclusive witness to the presence of Christ Jesus in our midst.” Its website proclaims that it is a respectful community, “where seekers and their questions are welcomed, where injustice is challenged, where the poor, the alienated and marginalized find a home,
and where people are refreshed, reconciled and renewed.”
