St James the Great statement on Taylor’s sale of church

Parish issues statement on suprise announcement that the diocese will follow through with disgraced Bishop Jon Bruno’s sale of the property

Dear members of Save St. James the Great,

Rev. Cindy and I met this morning with Bishop Coadjutor John H. Taylor; the Rev. Dr. Rachel Nyback, head of the Standing Committee; and Canon Bob Williams, Canon for Community Relations. They informed us that they have decided to proceed with the sale of the St. James property to Burnham Ward. They stated that there is a binding, legal agreement with a future closing date, which they did not disclose, for the sale of the property. They assured us that if St. James the Great wishes to continue as an Episcopal congregation, they will support us—just not in our building. We will provide more detail as events unfold. 

I know how devastating this will be for many of you, but the story is not over. 

In Christ,

Walter Stahr
