With interest in the Scientology religion at a whole new level, “Crash” composer, Mark Isham, Golden Globe-winning actress, Anne Archer and her TV producer husband Terry Jastrow helped make the Grand Opening of the Church of Scientology Mission of Santa Monica a truly star-studded affair.

They were joined by Catherine Bell, Jenna and Bodhi Elfman, Sky and Arwen Dayton, Debra Haggis, Michael Duff, Adam Beason, Jennifer Aspen, Judy Norton, Avis and Riggs Eckelberry, and representatives of the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International.

Rohn and Vikki Walker decided to open this mission, to provide Scientology services to the residents of the West Side of Los Angeles. The Walkers, who also opened Scientology missions in Harlingen, Texas; Sacramento, Stockton and Temecula, California and brought Scientology to Thailand, have made it their life’s work to introduce new people to the Scientology religion and the benefits of L. Ron Hubbard’s technology.

“I’ve always wanted to help people,” said Walker. “I went to school and college and kept looking and studying up various philosophies. With my very first encounter with Mr. Hubbard’s works, I saw that something actually worked.”

Enthusiastic to have a place close to their homes where they can introduce family and friends to the tremendous benefits they have experienced themselves, many Scientologists have volunteered their time to help with the opening of this Mission, and are proud to welcome it to its new home at 2716 Wilshire Boulevard.
