Inside and Outside the Churches of Scientology Around the World
This past weekend, I made my way up from Washington, D.C. to see the grand opening of the Church of Scientology of Quebec. The new church, located at 665 rue Saint-Joseph in Quebec, is in an outstanding location – and at 47,000 square feet of space is roomy enough to accommodate all of the Church’s outreach activities and programs to help the community.
I took a number of photos while I was there – I’ll include those as well as some of the official photos available on ScientologyNews.info:
Fifteen hundred Scientologists and guests packed the street in front of 665 rue Saint-Joseph to celebrate the opening of their new Church in the Saint-Roch district of Lower Quebec City. Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board of Religious Technology Center and ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion, dedicated the new Church of Scientology of Quebec on 30 January 2010.

The Quebec Church was the second new Scientology Church opened in January and the seventh new Church opened in the past year.
Scientologists and guests toured the new Church of Scientology of Quebec on 30 January 2010 after the ribbon was cut on the fully renovated Art Deco building at 665 rue St-Joseph in the Saint-Roch quarter of Lower Quebec City.
Just inside the new Church of Scientology of Quebec is the Public Information Center with multimedia displays presenting the beliefs and practices of the Scientology religion and the life and legacy of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard. The Information Center is open to the public daily for self-guided tours.
And, not quite as colorful, but adding context, are some of the photos I took at the Grand Opening:
A pair of ice sculptures of the Scientology and Dianetics symbols which were created at the entrance of the new Quebec Church of Scientology. It was about 1°F out there, so the ice was in no danger of melting.
