A parish in Hörsching, Upper Austria, has made an official complaint after two porn films were shot in its church in June.

The film crew did not have the parish priest's permission to film in his church, the Austrian Press Agency reported.

The Diocese of Linz said police are still investigating how the crew and actors were able to get into the church. The films starred a “well-known" porn actress and were made available to download on the internet.

Police are reportedly looking for the star of the films, who calls herself Babsi, is 24 years old, and comes from Upper Austria.

She was born in Poland but moved to Austria with her family as a child. Her new 'church films' have become an internet hit. 

She, and the film crew, could be charged under Section 189 of the Criminal Code, which prohibits creating “mischief” which is liable to cause legitimate nuisance in a church or religious community.

If found guilty they could be imprisoned for up to six months or fined.

The parish is now considering how to reinstate the dignity of the church. "The sacraments which were celebrated in the past few weeks in the parish church are still considered valid," the diocese said in a statement.
