Scientology Network’s DESTINATION: SCIENTOLOGY, the weekly travelogue series that takes viewers inside Scientology Churches all around the world and discovers what makes each one unique, presents an episode featuring New York City.
DESTINATION: SCIENTOLOGY airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
It’s an international capital of finance, fashion, theater and communications, home to a global mix of cultures, where some 200 languages are spoken—New York City. And at its heart is Times Square, the neon-lit crossroads of the world.
Half a block away stands the Church of Scientology, a home for the community at the center of Midtown’s hustle and bustle. In this episode, meet the staff and local Scientologists and hear how Scientology aligns with the spirit of freedom that has always prevailed in the city. For nearly 40 years, the Church has welcomed people from all walks of life, providing a welcome respite from life in this frenzied metropolis.
Destination: Scientology, New York looks back at how the Church, its staff and Volunteer Ministers responded to the attacks on 9/11, offering support and assistance to first responders. In return they were awarded the FDNY’s 9/11 Medal of Valor. The episode—and the spirit of this Church—is best summed up by one staff member who said, “The underlying theme is everybody wants to help, and they want to really make a better city for everyone else to live in.”
