From the Huff Po:

Five years after revealing that she had started to study Scientology, Katie Holmes has officially returned to the Catholic faith, registering as a parishioner at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York City.

“Everyone is thrilled to have Katie join us,” a member of the church’s choir told me. “She has not yet attended a service, but when she does she will be welcomed with open arms.”

The church, located on 16th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, is known for inclusive thinking and its welcoming of many gay and lesbian Catholics. Its mission statement indicates that the Roman Catholic Church parish “strives to be a prophetic, welcoming community, inclusive witness to the presence of Christ Jesus in our midst.” Its website proclaims that it is a respectful community, “where seekers and their questions are welcomed, where injustice is challenged, where the poor, the alienated and marginalized find a home, and where people are refreshed, reconciled and renewed.”

Hey, you know. Not exactly my personal cup of tea, but I’d be jumping for joy that she’s “joining” any kind of religious sect, even something way out there like trying to recreate Norse mythology and worshiping Odin and his son, Thor, if it meant that she was getting far the f-ck away from the Church of $cientology. So yay!

One thing that I’m totally not all celebratory over? That damn outfit up top, there, that Katie chose to wear on her first night out sans Suri in five years and as a free woman. Is she trying to emulate Kim Kardashian? Yeah, because THIS:

Katie. Katie! Just STOP. Immediately stop what you’re doing right now and consider what you’ve done, here. Please. You’ve come so, so far to allow something like a vague similarity to Kim Kardashian to keep you from rising to the top. Come on, girl. Don’t do this to us, OK?
