California diocese renames Crystal Cathedral

Catholic World News - June 12, 2012

Christ Cathedral will be the new name of Crystal Cathedral, the former Protestant church acquired by the Diocese of Orange for $57.5 million following a ruling by a bankruptcy court judge. The 3,000-seat church built under the pastorate of Protestant televangelist Robert Schuller in 1980.

“We hold Rev. Schuller and his ministry in the highest esteem,” said Bishop Tod Brown. “It was important that any change of name for the cathedral itself be respectful of its spiritual legacy while accommodating our needs to clearly define this important facility as a Catholic center of worship.”
