Church of Scientology to Host Interfaith Event for Memorial Day Weekend


On May 27th the Church of Scientology Volunteer Ministers of Tampa Bay will host an event in honor of Memorial Day encouraging all faiths to rededicate themselves to peace and understanding for our Country, while remembering those who fought and died to protect these basic rights. Religious leaders and members of all faiths are invited to attend. The event will be held in the Historic Fort Harrison Crystal ballroom at 11 am.

Clearwater, FL, May 06, 2017 --(PR.com)-- This event will be the 3rd interfaith event held this year. The others, held in January and February 2017, brought together some 150 religious leaders and their congregants to address the common crises faced in the communities and created resolutions to solve these issues. This event will include prayers from several major faiths, a performance by the Church of Scientology Choir, and a five star brunch provided by the Fort Harrison chefs.

Memorial Day honors Americans who have died in service to their country, and this patriotic tradition can be traced back to Waterloo, NY in 1866. The U.S Constitution protects freedom of religion, freedom of speech and expression. When a threat of these freedoms has arisen, men and women have selflessly risked and sacrificed their lives to defend it. This event will honor those who have fallen while serving the country.

“With concerns of religious discrimination today, we feel the protection of these rights and beliefs are even more important than even before. As Mr. Hubbard wrote in the Creed of the Church of Scientology, ‘We of the Church believe: That all men have inalienable rights to their own religious practices and their performance; That all men have inalienable rights to their own defense; And that no agency less than God has the power to suspend or set aside these rights overtly or covertly,’” said Ms. Glendy Goodsell, Executive Director of the Volunteer Ministers of Tampa Bay.

“He also said separately, ‘On the day we can fully trust each other, there will be peace on earth.’ I believe with the simple steps of coming together for a common purpose, we are taking the appropriate steps to make that a reality.”
