Episcopal panel reviewing bishop's actions in St. James church sale, closure

From Los Angeles-

A three-bishop panel with the national Episcopal Church will review Los Angeles Bishop J. Jon Bruno's actions related to his plan to sell St. James the Great Episcopal Church in Newport Beach.

Members of the St. James congregation sent a complaint, known as a presentment, to the national Episcopal Church in New York City in early July alleging that Bruno violated church doctrine in May after he put the St. James property, at 3209 Via Lido, up for sale to a developer and locked out the congregation.

The complaint alleges "violations of the vows of ordination," including dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation, and that Bruno participated in "conduct unbecoming to a bishop," according to a news release from the congregation.
