Crystal Cathedral Sold to the Orange Diocese!
I was apparently premature in my last post about Crystal Cathedral. It turns out the Diocese of Orange will indeed take over the glass buildings and retrofit it into their new cathedral. I haven’t been following the story much anymore, since I thought Chapman University would get the sale. It turns out one of the deciding factors was how the church would be used for bringing people to Christ. Ultimately, Chapman University can’t promise that the building won’t be eventually turned over to secular purposes. The Catholic Church can.
You can read a much more thorough review of the outcome at Seasons of Grace.
