The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, California, announced this week that it is exploring the possibility of buying the controversy-vexed church, which declared bankruptcy last fall.

"The Diocese of Orange does not currently have an adequate cathedral to meet the needs of its 1.2 million Catholics in Orange County, the 11th largest diocese in the nation," the statement said.


The diocese's announcement came on the same day Chapman University, a Southern California school, revealed that it had offered $46 million for the Crystal Cathedral.
