More on the dispute in Rochester

A report out of Albany about the parish property dispute between All Saints Irondequoit and the diocese of Rochester.

The diocese filed a lawsuit to get the property, located at 759 Winona Blvd. A trial judge and a mid-level appeals court sided with the diocese, saying that it was "entitled to the real and personal property at issue in the case that is currently held in trust by All Saints ... for the benefit of the diocese and National Church." But VanVoorhis told the judges Tuesday that the parishioners bore all of the expenses of building and maintaining the church and therefore should be permitted to retain ownership.

A decision from the Court of Appeals is expected late next month.
