Rename Crystal Cathedral: Roman Catholic Diocese Of Orange Takes Suggestions For Church's New Name

Just days after finalizing the purchase of California-based megachurch Crystal Cathedral, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange has decided not only to rename the site, but also to take suggestions from the public on what the new name should be.

More than 600 suggestions were collected within the first 24 hours of the announcement, CBS Los Angeles reports.

The only catch is that "any suggested name have a 'Christological' relevance, that is, the name must refer to the nature and person of Christ or to his activities as illustrated by the gospels," according to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange's website.

Participants should also stay away from names referencing Mary or even the apostles, CBS Los Angeles emphasized.

Entries are due by Feb. 20, and Bishop Tod Brown will announce the winner at a later date, according to diocese's website.

Naming restrictions aside, a writer for Patch offered some rather clever suggestions for the church's new name, including Jesus Coast Plaza and Our Lady of Perpetual Windex -- a dig the building's iconic glass exterior.

The Diocese of Orange finalized the $57.5 million purchase on Feb. 3.

The building will be redesigned and serve the area's nearly 1.3 million Catholics, the Associated Press reports.

Despite some opposition, Crystal Cathedral founder Rev. Robert H. Schuller moved forward with the sale after struggling with bankruptcy because he wanted to ensure the building was still used for worship.

You are thinking of the League of Doom headquarters.

I'll be damned. I've been past there more than a few times and never knew that. After looking at the self-guided tour attachment I can see why I never knew that.
Will give me something to point out to my son's when next we go.

Thank you for this useful information.

Yeah true I forgot about the Holy Land part. Still, it's not actually discussing religion but more of a game.
