Crystal Cathedral sale goes forward after 99-year lease claim fails
GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (KABC) -- A last-minute effort to block the sale of the Crystal Cathedral in Orange County has failed.
Cathedral members claimed the congregation has a 99-year lease on the landmark church in Garden Grove.
But at an emergency hearing Monday, no one could prove that the lease actually exists.
The sale of the church to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange will go forward and is expected to close in the next few days.
