The doors opened to this building in 1990, at a cost of $25 million and entirely debt free. Designed by Gin Wong and Associates, the former Family Life Center served for many years as the Crystal Cathedral Academy.
Featuring 132,000 square feet, the third and fourth floors house the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange Pastoral Center, home to the offices of The Most Reverend Kevin Vann, Bishop of Orange and the ministries of the diocese. These offices were originally located at Marywood in the City of Orange and moved to these new facilities in 2013.
The first and second floors are now home to the Cathedral Academy, a state of the art educational facility.
Gin Wong and Associates are also known for designing the Arco Tower and Midnight Mission in Los Angeles, as well as working on the futuristic Theme Building at LAX.
