Ousted Newport Beach congregation finds temporary home

From Los Angeles-

St. James the Great Episcopal Church has finally found a home — albeit temporarily.

The ousted Newport Beach church congregation will meet for the first time on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. at the Gray Matter Museum of Art, 485 E. 17th St., in Costa Mesa.

The group has met outside near the 601 Lido Condominiums tower since June, when they were locked out of the church on Via Lido.

In May, Bishop J. Jon Bruno announced the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles and a developer were negotiating the sale of the church and adjacent property. The diocese said the sale could be for as much as $15 million.
