Kobe Bryant was a perfect little angel at St. Therese of Carmel Church according to parishioners who tell TMZ they only saw Kobe praying -- and they've never heard of his mysterious accuser.
Several people at the church are backing up Kobe's denial of a scuffle with a fellow churchgoer last Sunday. Kobe allegedly thought the guy was taking pictures of him on his cell phone.
Church members tell us, no one took pictures during the service ... and they definitely didn't see Kobe grab anyone's phone.
In fact, we're told, no one on the church staff has even heard of Thomas Hagos ... the guy who allegedly tried to take the cell phone pics.
