Verlene Cheeseboro, director of Public Affairs of the Church Of Scientology Harlem was ordained as a minister on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012.

Pastor Rev. Phyllis Mack performed the ceremony during Sunday services, enabling Cheeseboro to carry forth the message that Scientology, the study and handling of the spirit in relationship to itself, others and all of life, offers a pathway to greater freedom by giving the individual the data to solve his own problems, accomplish his goals and gain lasting happiness.

The ordination, the first for the Church of Scientology, was conducted during Sunday Services in which parishioners and non-parishioners alike took part.

Reverend Cheeseboro, was given the honor of closing the services by reading the Scientology Prayer For Total Freedom.
