 Saturday was not a good day for Concord De La Salle. Not only did the Spartans lose in football to St. John Bosco, but their soccer team was beaten by L.A.

Next up for the Phantoms is the Nike SoCal Showcase in Oceanside.   Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

The former Crystal Cathedral will close to the public as it undergoes a transformation from a space built as a television studio as much as a sanctuary into a Catholic cathedral, the church's new owner, the Diocese of Orange, announced Tuesday. Beginning Sunday, the newly named Christ Cathedral will be closed for construction as crews launch a $29-million effort to restore the more than 75,000-square-foot space. The diocese has been working with liturgical consultants and architects to modify the cathedral built in the vision of the Rev. Robert Schuller into one that meets the requirements to serve as the headquarters for Orange County's Catholic community of more than 1.2 million people.

Whenever she has bad news for a family at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center emergency room, Gabriela Perez says a little prayer to herself before stepping through the door. A devout Roman Catholic nicknamed "Mother Teresa" by her co-workers, Perez became a nurse practitioner 27 years ago to serve her community and those in need. It's more than a job, she said. Serving the needy is deeply intertwined with her faith. Perez attended the White Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels on Sunday afternoon to pray for her patients and for others in the healthcare profession.

 David Lemoto, a 6-foot-1, 240-pound senior lineman at L.A. Cathedral, has not played this season and there's uncertainty whether he'll ever get on the field for the Phantoms. He has attended Crespi, Cleveland and Canoga Park. He transferred to Cathedral during the summer, but Canoga Park challenged his eligibility, and Cathedral won't allow him to play until questions are resolved so that the team won't have to forfeit a game if he's declared ineligible.

Re "Age-old rituals, TV-age church," Column One, Sept. 13 The Roman Catholic Church's hierarchy has chosen to spend millions ($57.5 million on the purchase alone) to convert the former Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove to the Christ Cathedral. It's logic: The church needs a place that helps Catholics "see their faith is larger," according to Diocese of Orange Bishop Kevin Vann. This echoes former L.A. Archbishop Roger M. Mahony's fundraising to build his downtown legacy edifice, saying that a magnificent structure is needed to properly experience God. I say baloney.

Nothing lasts forever, Omar Chatty knows that much. Even so, when he heard that the hundreds of religious steppingstones at the former Crystal Cathedral were being removed, the 62-year-old San Jose man was caught off guard. He bought his in 2006 for $2,500, an endowment he believed would "keep the gardens blooming, the water flowing and the Crystal Cathedral sparkling. " But his donation, and the hundreds of others from congregants who bought the marble blocks, wasn't enough to save the church from bankruptcy.

Doctors say Robert H. Schuller has life-threatening cancer and that with treatment he could live another two years, the famed evangelist's family has announced. The 89-year-old has a growth in his esophagus and was initially told he had three months to live, said his daughter, Sheila Schuller Coleman, who first shared the news with worshipers during a sermon in late August. In follow-up exams, an oncologist advised Schuller that although the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes, he was "a good candidate for chemotherapy and radiation treatment that could extend his life," according to an online update on the Hope Center of Christ's website, the church headed by Schuller Coleman.

Frank Martinez laid his shaking hands on the surface of the blank canvas. As before every painting, he said a prayer. Then the artist began his work. He applied acrylic paint and, with a rag, wiped it away. Shapes began to form and colors blended into one another. He used a piece of wood to draw straight lines, a task complicated by Parkinson's disease. Slowly, the mural took form, a layered portrait of early 18th century life, mission-building and Catholic faith in California.
