Saturday a day to pray for James

Saturdays are no longer a day of play for Scientology‘s newest pin-up boy yesterday spent his Saturday reflecting and studying the philosophies of L Ron Hubbard – the science fiction writer turned religious guru whose books have inspired some of the world’s richest film stars.

Not so long ago Packer Junior could be seen entertaining friends on his Bondi beachfront balcony or walking the dogs he co-owned with former wife Jodhi.

But recently he has attended so-called auditing sessions with the Church of Scientology. Yesterday he spent nearly three hours at the organisation’s Glebe building.

He was behind the wheel of his sporty black Mercedes when he zipped into the private basement car park using his own personal access card just after 10am. He pulled out of the car park at 11.40am, but within seconds had executed a U-turn and returned to the building before finally calling it a day at 12.45pm.

The three-storey building in Greek Street, Glebe, features a brass-detailed revolving door.

The tinted windows of his Mercedes and underground parking facility provided the fiercely private PBL boss with just enough cover to escape the stares of people who were tripping into nearby coffee shops for lunch.

Packer has steadfastly refused to comment on rumours he has embraced Scientology since splitting from his wife Jodhi in June. But he has not flinched from his instruction despite growing public interest in the church’s latest millionaire recruit.
