Katy Perry's Parents Abiding by Katy's Words

1/8/2012 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katy Perry's parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, delivered a sermon this morning to the folks at the New Hope International in Fort Valley, GA -- and this time there was no mention of Katy's divorce.

Earlier this week, Keith and Mary appeared at a church in Ohio and discussed Katy's split from Russell Brand during their sermon.

Katy tweeted last night that she didn't want anyone speaking for her -- including her family. Her parents seemingly listened ... though Keith did joke about the likely presence of press in the church.
