Mimi Rogers was raised in the Church of Scientology, and she was actually the auditor for her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, when he joined the Church. As of 2012, it appears that Rogers has left the Church, as she has expressed her dissatisfaction with its leader, David Miscavige. Suri Cruise was raised in the Church of Scientology from the time she was born in 2006 until her parents, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, divorced in 2012. Holmes, who has custody of Suri, has since returned to the Catholic Church.
