An Anglican church campus in Newport Beach belongs to the larger Episcopal Church Diocese of Los Angeles, an  Orange County Superior Court  judge ruled last week. St. James Anglican Church members split from the Episcopal Church nine years ago after a fissure over the ordination of a gay bishop and other issues. The court order, which comes at what could be the end of a series of court battles over three church properties on 32nd Street, was reaffirmed Monday by Judge Kim G. Dunning.

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Wednesday ordered leaders of a former Episcopal church in La Crescenta by Oct. 12 to turn over church property to the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, marking the latest wrinkle in a long-running legal dispute. St. Luke's Anglican Church and the diocese have been feuding since 2006, when a majority of the parish's congregants voted to pull out of the diocese and the 2.1-million-member Episcopal Church because of differences over biblical authority and interpretation, including the national church's decision to consecrate an openly gay bishop.

The Episcopal Church gave final approval Wednesday to the ordination of an openly gay bishop in Los Angeles, putting a face behind a policy that has divided the church and caused some of its more conservative members to break away. Mary Glasspool is the first openly gay bishop approved since 2003, when the election of a gay man as bishop of New Hampshire caused such an uproar that the U.S. church, under pressure from other members of the global Anglican Communion, imposed a moratorium on such elevations.

Some of Southern California's top religious leaders met Wednesday with Anaheim's police chief and city manager over a controversial policy that allows INS agents to question suspects detained in the city jail. The religious leaders issued a short statement after the unusual closed-door session saying that the conversation was "fruitful and informative" and that "mutual concerns of how to better serve our community were discussed."

The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles has scored its second legal victory this year in a battle with conservative churches that have sought to take their property with them as they break away to affiliate with overseas Anglican leaders. A California appellate court this week affirmed a lower court ruling that said the property at St. Luke's Anglican Church in La Crescenta is held in trust for the diocese and the national Episcopal Church.

In another setback for the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, an Orange County Superior Court judge ruled Monday that two conservative breakaway parishes were the rightful owners of their church buildings and other property. The decision in favor of All Saints Church in Long Beach and St. David's Church in North Hollywood was not unexpected. Last August, the same judge, David C. Velasquez, handed down a similar ruling in favor of St. James Church in Newport Beach.

The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles is the rightful owner of the buildings and other property of a conservative La Crescenta congregation that broke away from the diocese last year, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday. The decision by Judge John Shepard Wiley Jr. against St. Luke's of the Mountains came more than a week after an appeals court panel in Orange County ruled in favor of the six-county Los Angeles Diocese in a similar property dispute with three other parishes.

Moving to assert control over three breakaway parishes, the Episcopal bishop of Los Angeles on Friday appointed two assistant bishops to serve the congregations and said he would appoint new lay governing boards. The move by the Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno, communicated in letters dated Sept. 1 but delivered Friday, escalated what probably will be a protracted legal battle over ownership of the parish property and Bruno's jurisdiction over the breakaway priests.

It was church history. The Rt. Rev. Frederick H. Borsch reached out his arm and offered a tall shepherd's staff to the Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno. For a few seconds, the longtime friends clutched the staff together. It seemed like neither wanted to let go of the moment, which occurred Saturday in front of a thousand people at the annual Diocesan Convention of the Los Angeles Episcopal Church. When Borsch released it, Bruno formally replaced him as pastoral shepherd of the diocese.
