The unveiling of the six-story structure, composed of glass and wood, took place on Saturday, drawing attendees from across France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Hungary, Germany, UK, the USA and others, including prominent figures from the International Association of Scientologists (IAS) and distinguished guests from various sectors.

Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board Religious Technology Center and the ecclesiastical leader of Scientology, presided over the event. He highlighted the unparalleled significance of establishing an Ideal Church in Paris, a city he referred to as the “Cultural Capital of Earth.” Mr. Miscavige emphasized, “While we’ve opened Ideal Orgs in other cultural epicenters, megacities of significance to our entire global movement, well, this one crowns them all.”

Mr. Miscavige also drew parallels between Paris’s emblematic values of liberty, equality, and fraternity and the Church’s core mission, underscoring the city’s historical role in championing human rights.

The ceremony featured speeches from various experts and advocates, including Dr. Mouslim Fidahoussen, a religious scholar and Imam, who praised the Church’s efforts in spreading L. Ron Hubbard’s moral guidelines through The Way to Happiness. Mr. Jean Maher, an international human rights expert, lauded the Church’s dedication to human rights, noting the distribution of 400,000 Human Rights booklets across France.

Mr. David Guyon, a lawyer and university lecturer, acknowledged the Church’s work with the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) in addressing forced psychiatric commitment. Dr. Petar Gramatikov from the United Religions Initiative commended Scientology’s commitment to interfaith dialogue, and Ms. Elodie Maumont, a civil liberties attorney, celebrated the Church’s persistence and passion.

The event culminated with Mr. Miscavige inviting Paris to discover Scientology like never before, followed by the cutting of the grand blue ribbon and a fireworks display. Attendees were then welcomed to tour the new Church, which promises to serve as a community hub for a variety of events and programs, including interfaith forums, human rights summits, and cultural performances.

The Ideal Church of Scientology and Celebrity Centre Grand Paris aims to foster greater understanding and cooperation within the community, embodying the ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity. Ivan Arjona, the Church’s representative in Europe, expressed optimism about the Church’s role in “inspiring and uplifting the Parisian community.”

This latest addition to the Church’s global network of Ideal Orgs, which includes locations in London, Berlin, Madrid, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Rome, Milano, Budapest, Tokyo, Taiwan, and several U.S. cities, underscores Scientology’s ongoing expansion and its commitment to making a positive impact worldwide.
