F.C. Churches Poised for Supreme Court Ruling

The News-Press has learned that leaders of the Falls Church Episcopal Church and their colleagues at the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, on one side, and the breakaway congregation of former Episcopal Church members now identified as Falls Church Anglicans, are expecting tomorrow a ruling by the Virginia Supreme Court of an appeal of the January 2012 ruling by the Fairfax Circuit Court establishing the Diocese as the rightful owner of the historic Falls Church church property in downtown Falls Church. The ruling may also address tertiary property issues, such as funds held in trusts and adjacent church-owned properties.
