Fans of Tom Cruise's new belle Katie Holmes are baffled by her interest in Scientology - because she is a devout Catholic.

The DAWSON'S CREEK actress has been reading about the controversial faith since she first stepped out with Cruise in April (05).

She recently said, "I have looked into it (Scientology) myself and I really like it and I think it's really wonderful... I feel like I'm bettering myself."

Cruise added, "She digs it."

But Earlier this year (05) - before her romance with Cruise hit frontpages - Holmes talked about the importance of her faith and how it had helped her career.

She told magazine COSMOGIRL, "I was raised Catholic and I've always had faith in God. It gives me a lot of security."
