Belgium, 17th Dec 2023, King NewsWire – This week a documentary called “Operation; Do Something About It” premiered on the Scientology Network highlighting the efforts of Scientology Volunteer Ministers, around the world during the COVID 19. The Scientology volunteers primarily focused on helping places of worship reopen after being closed in the early stages of the pandemic.
As the pandemic progressed people turned to their churches, mosques or temples for comfort and support. However even as restrictions eased many were still hesitant to return due to fears of infection. Recognizing the need for care Scientology Volunteer Ministers worked together with religious leaders to implement safety measures in different places of worship.
Across locations such as Mexico, Rome, the UK, Aruba and South Africa Volunteer Ministers mobilized with training in sanitization procedures and advanced equipment to assist houses of worship and their communities.
In Mexico specifically where 90 percent of the population identifies as Christian Volunteer Ministers played a role in sanitizing churches belonging to various denominations like Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Evangelical. Thanks to their efforts prominent pilgrimage sites, like the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe were able to reopen. Furthermore, the Volunteer Ministers offered training sessions to the staff of the church. Provided them with all the required equipment thus ensuring the safety of the basilica’s operations.
The secretary to the Archbishop of Mexico City thanked the Church of Scientology for working “for the good of the people,” making it possible for them to return to church in safety. “I think this work must be known,” he said. “We do great work when we work together for the good of the community.”
In the city of Birmingham, England, where 20 percent of the population follows the faith a group of volunteers, from Scientology known as Volunteer Ministers took on an important task. They dedicated themselves to sanitizing places of worship across the city not limited to mosques. Their efforts reached out to Hindu temples, Sikh gurdwaras and even a Greek Orthodox church. With a focus on safety, they successfully sanitized over 1.5 million feet of these diverse religious spaces ensuring a secure environment for people to return and worship.
One administrator at a mosque described the Volunteer Ministers as ” heroes ” while another mosques imam praised their dedication to helping others and promoting unity beyond cultural backgrounds, skin colors and ethnicities. According to another imam their actions were driven by love. A commitment to peace. The Volunteer Ministers have become role models for fostering humanity through service.
In Italy the Scientology Volunteers also responded to a request from the Great Mosque of Rome. One of the mosques in the Western World. Armed with their expertise, in sanitization practices these volunteers covered an area spanning 300,000 feet within the facility. The imam expressed happiness upon witnessing volunteers coming from all corners of Italy. He described the Church of Scientology’s mobilization as inspiring promoting a society of love and brotherhood where collaboration benefits everyone.
The roots of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers movement can be traced back, to the mid-1970s when it was established by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. Hubbard viewed religion as a system that helps individuals tackle the challenges of life. According to him a Volunteer Minister is someone who willingly assists others by restoring purpose, truth and spiritual values in their lives. They address pain, evil and injustice with the goal of providing relief and empowering individuals.
