Crystal Cathedral to begin Catholic transformation

By AP Wire Service

GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP), The former Crystal Cathedral in Orange County is closing to the public as it begins a transformation into a Roman Catholic cathedral.

The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/IknivO) that the recently renamed Christ Cathedral will close Sunday for a $29 million restoration. It's scheduled to reopen in 2016.

The landmark glass-sided church was built by the Rev. Robert H. Schuller and for decades was the home of his ÒHour of PowerÓ televangelist broadcasts.

The property was sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange in 2010 after Crystal Cathedral Ministries declared bankruptcy.
