CHURCHES, MISSIONS AND GROUPS
Rather, there are many specialized services ministered involving training in advanced spiritual concepts that would give a tremendous boost in awareness to any Scientologist, no matter where on the Grade Chart he may be. These services are based on several series of very popular lectures that L. Ron Hubbard gave in the 1950s on the state of OT, such as The Route to Infinity, The Dawn of Immortality and The Creation of Human Ability.
Other religious programs conducted aboard the Freewinds include religious conventions and seminars for staff and parishioners of churches of Scientology from around the world as well as specially arranged gatherings also for Scientologists from a particular country or community for a particular program of religious services.
Each year the annual Maiden Voyage event, commemorating the anniversary of New OT VIII, has come to be one of the most important gatherings of dedicated Scientologists and an opportunity for senior Church officials to meet and work directly with these parishioners to advance their religion. Scientologists who attend this annual spiritual cruise become OT Ambassadors and initiate programs to help Scientologists all over the world advance the aims of Scientology and to reach the top of the Bridge at New OT VIII.
The Freewinds is like no other place on Earth. It truly marks the beginning of a voyage to all eternity.
