Any sugestions for new name for Crystal Cathedral?
#1
A few days ago the Diocese of Orange formally acquired the iconic Crystal Cathedral and its campus in Garden Grove.Before the building may be used as a Catholic cathedral several design and other changes must be made. In addition, the Bishop will re-name the site. You can be a part of that process by submitting your suggestion for the cathedral's new name. The deadline for suggestions is February 20, 2012.
Following a review of all suggestions, Bishop Brown will determine the cathedral's name and announce it at the appropriate time.
Bishop Brown has asked that any suggested name have a "Christological" relevance, that is, the name must refer to the nature and person of Christ or to his activities as illustrated by the gospels.
"It is our goal to make the new cathedral a gathering place for Catholics and other people of faith. By asking for naming suggestions we begin the process of connecting this wonderful structure and its future to our faith and the larger community."
-Bishop Tod D. Brown-

Disfiguration might be more appropriate!

In other words, "our goal is to build an ecumenical centre."

Might as well call it Babylon Zoo.

I just filled in the formulary and suggested the name "Our Lady of Guadalupe" which is the patroness of the diocese.

But I'm sure it'll be rejected. It scares the Protestants away and Bishop "Tod" can't have that.
