St. James the Great: No Sale

From the Diocese of Los Angeles:

We understand that the buyer has decided not to proceed with its purchase of the property on Via Lido. This event, we believe, gives our diocesan community a renewed opportunity for careful discernment about our mission and ministry in south Orange County. We again pledge to do all we can pastorally, logistically, and financially to assist the St. James congregation should it wish to regain mission status in the diocese. After a suitable period of discernment and planning, we will reopen the church as a bishop’s chapel, with supply, or guest, clergy invited to conduct Sunday services. It will be open to all in the community who wish to attend and glorify and serve our God in Christ.

The Rt. Rev. John Harvey Taylor
Bishop Coadjutor

The Rev. Dr. Rachel Anne Nyback
President, Standing Committee
