Diocese ups its bid for Crystal Cathedral

Crystal Cathedral
September 5, 2011

The Diocese of Orange, Calif., has upped its bid to buy the Crystal Cathedral complex from US$50 million to US$53.6 million.

Once the home church of the Rev. Robert Schuller, a noted TV preacher, the cathedral property was put up for auction earlier this year as part of the Crystal Cathedral Ministries bankruptcy proceedings.

A bidding war has begun, prompting the Orange Diocese to increase its offer.
