  • (1888PressRelease) September 18, 2020 - The International Day of Peace was started in 1984, as a United Nations-sanctioned holiday, observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence.

    “While Clearwater is known for the many religious establishments representing the Baptist, Catholic, Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox and Muslim faiths, Clearwater is also known as the international spiritual headquarters of the Church of Scientology,” said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center.

    “It’s like travelling to a new country to learn their customs, appreciate their art, their way of life and experience their culture,” said Skjelset. “And similar to visiting another country, you enjoy your visit and increase your understanding of other cultures while retaining your own culture and beliefs. When you learn to appreciate what others believe, you broaden your understanding of those around you while strengthening your own beliefs and values.”

    During L. Ron Hubbard’s quest to understand the mind, spirit and life he traversed five continents and studied 21 races and cultures. In a brief statement he said, “The only richness there is, is understanding. That is all Scientology has to give.”

    Masks are required indoors and are provided complimentary along with travel-sized bottles of hand sanitizer.
