Dinner Presentation: The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange selected architectural firm -- Johnson Fain of Los Angeles -- to transform the iconic Crystal Cathedral, located in Garden Grove, California into the Christ Cathedral, the new spiritual home for the Diocese of Orange. The original structure was designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson for the Reverend Robert Schuller Ministry. The all glass, 2000 seat Crystal Cathedral has undergone extensive improvements to both the interior and exterior, transitioning this world renown and important architectural landmark into a Roman Catholic place of worship. The Cathedral itself is believed to be the first Protestant Church ever converted into a Catholic House of Worship. The 22-acre campus site, which includes the Cathedral, has now become the new spiritual center of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange – The Christ Cathedral Center.

About the Speaker: Steve Chung, AIA, a principal with the architectural firm of Johnson Fain in Los Angeles, CA will make the presentation regarding this stunning conversion to Christ Cathedral. Steve is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. He is a California Registered Architect and is currently the Technical Principal at Johnson Fain.
