Rochester's Episcopal Diocese Plans To Sell Its East Avenue Building

From Rochester-

Another area religious organization is selling an historic building. This time, it's the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester.

The Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, Prince Singh has written to church members letting them know that the trustees and staff are looking to sell the stately mansion they use for administrative offices on East Avenue.

Singh says it's not because of declining interest in the church. In fact, he says a number of episcopal churches throughout their 8-county region have been growing.  The Bishop says this has more to do with the fact they really don't need such a large building for administrative staff, since they are only using a portion of it, and the church itself, has a more decentralized model.
