After Scientology, Leah Remini Says She Has Found “Amazing” Comfort in Catholic Church

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 11/03/15

Some good news, via The Daily Caller:

Leah Remini said she’s found “amazing” comfort in the Catholic Church after leaving Scientology two years ago. During an interview with Howard Stern Tuesday morning, the 45-year-old actress said she was raised Catholic by her family, who was “very insistent” on religion. “My grandmother lived in Little Italy, and she went to church every day,” Remini told Stern. “She’d go light candles, she’d pray, and as a child that was comforting to me.”

You may remember the former “King of Queens” actress proudly posted pictures of her daughter’s baptism (shown above) on social media in September.
