So from that time when she remembers Church only very few of clergymen could read.

'Travel gathering information little-by-little' doesn't work either since the majority of people are not able to read or write either and those who can you will not meet on streets or common places.
Adding on a little bit to that, if the church even saw Horo's ears. I think they would easily consider her some kind of demon/pagan worshipper. The Church back then was pretty much shot after the National Assembly and the San riots.
Signature stolen by a horde of carnivorous bunnies. It is an unscientifically proven fact that they are attracted to signatures which break the signature rules.
