    On June 2, more than 5,000 Scientologists and guests celebrated the grand opening of the Church of Scientology of Orange County, at 505 N. Sycamore St., Santa Ana
    Church officials said about 5,000 people attended the event to see the dedication, led by David Miscavige, Scientology's ecclesiastical leader.
    The executive director of the Orange County church is Ed Dearborn.
    The building was designed by W. Horace Austin, who also designed the original Santa Ana City Hall and the Bowers Museum. After acquisition, the church renovated the building's facade and Gothic Revival style interiors, including its arched ceilings, leaded glass doors, glass and alabaster chandeliers, and hand-carved mahogany staircase, church representatives said.
    Hours are 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. weekends. The auditorium is available for banquets and civic events, the church said.

    5000 there for the opening? They must be overflowing with happy "publics" coming in for courses! That org has got to be SUPER buried in traffic from free and able beings coming in every day and night! Anybody have video of the people streaming in and out their front doors?

      What a gathering! I drove by today and the building is truly beautiful. What a great contribution to the Downtown Santa Ana area!

      This building is fantastic! The restoration and attention to detail is amazing. I love it! Having the church in Downtown Santa Ana is so great and the community was so welcoming!

        Lol, how was the community welcoming when they weren't even allowed to attend the event?

      I was introduced to Scientology in 1974 and have been a Scientologist ever since. I've always been proud of my religion but to see the ribbon fall and the doors open on the beautiful building so that all can use the technology whether they are Scientologists or not to better their lives and our community, I have never been prouder. I use the information I've gained through it with my wife & children and family and in my business and my relationships with others. These are rough times in which we live and Scientology is definitely a stabilizing influence in my life.
      You are welcome to stop by and visit, take a few minutes or a few hours and find out what Scientology is first hand for yourself.
