  • (1888PressRelease) January 05, 2018 - Clearwater, FL – “We saw the sign, ‘Church of Scientology Information Center – All are welcome’ and decided to come in and look around,” said Chuck, the father of the family. “We heard about the Church of Scientology’s spiritual headquarters in Clearwater, and since we know nothing about Scientology, we wanted to look around.” During the visit their questions about Scientology’s beliefs were answered and they received a photo brochure of the Church of Scientology of New York as a keepsake.

    “It’s amazing the diversity of people that come through these doors every day who are curious about Scientology,” added Amber. “One visitor, a life-long Clearwater resident, Michael Fitzsimmons, visited the Information Center for the fist time in 2016. Now he frequently comes by to say hello, learn more and have a cup of coffee.”

    “It’s always nice to have someone to talk to and answer questions about Scientology,” said Mr. Fitzsimmons.

    Since its opening in July 2015, the Scientology Information Center has hosted visitors from across the U.S., and visitors from 25 countries, from as far away as Argentina and Vietnam. Over 100 community events have taken place in the Center. They highlight special days including Earth Day, International Day of Happiness, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

    “The Center houses a gallery of information panels, 4 audiovisual displays containing some 400 videos. These displays allow anyone to learn what are Dianetics, Scientology and its founder, Mr. L. Ron Hubbard for themselves,” said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center.
