The Episcopal Diocese of Rochester has sold its East Avenue offices and chapel for nearly $1.2 million, a deal that was finalized late last month.
The 12,000-square-foot property at 935 East Ave. in the city was sold to East 935 LLC, according to the Episcopal Diocese, which has relocated its offices to a space at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 3825 East Henrietta Road, Henrietta.
"These funds will enter our endowment and will be used to support such things as outreach missions and growth of our congregations," Rt. Rev. Prince G. Singh, bishop of the Rochester diocese, said in a statement.
The diocese began exploring a sale of the 100-year-old building, where it oversaw 46 parishes in eight counties, earlier this year. The area diocese has been based at the site since 1954.
