Crystal Cathedral to be Renamed Christ Cathedral Under new Catholic Leadership

By Michael Ireland
Senior International Correspondent, ASSIST News Service

LOS ANGELES, CA (ANS) -- A Roman Catholic diocese that bought the Southern California mega-church Crystal Cathedral in a $57.5 million bankruptcy sale will rename the Protestant place of worship Christ Cathedral, church leaders said on Saturday.

According to Alex Dobuzinskis, writing for Reuters in an article posted to The Huffington Post (www.huffingtonpost.com ), the glass-walled Crystal Cathedral is famous for its "Hour of Power" broadcasts and for its televangelist founder Robert Schuller, 85, who has since retired and left the church.

The Huffington Post reports that Crystal Cathedral, in the Orange County suburb of Garden Grove, saw its finances spiral downhill amid a drop in attendance and donations and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, California bought it a bankruptcy sale late last year.

The online newspaper says the name change was announced at an event in Garden Grove where new priests were ordained, said Stephen Bohannon, a spokesman for the diocese. The new name was approved by the Vatican, he said.

The Huffington Post website says Protestant ministry leaders at Crystal Cathedral announced on Thursday that their congregation would move in June 2013 to a smaller Catholic church, under the terms of a deal with the diocese.

The website goes on to report the Catholic diocese plans to turn Crystal Cathedral into a central place of worship for its growing flock, but Bohannon said it has not determined exactly when that could happen. Making the cathedral into a site for Catholic worship will require certain renovations, he said.

The Protestant ministry at Crystal Cathedral retains the "Hour of Power" broadcasts, which have attracted millions of television viewers since Schuller started the program in 1970, the Huffington Post article stated.
