Stay denied, Falls Church (Episcopal) returns home May 15

Posted Apr 30, 2012

[Episcopal Diocese of Virginia] Late last night [April 27], the Fairfax Circuit Court ruled in favor of the Diocese, denying the Falls Church Anglican’s motion to stay the Court’s order throughout their appeal. While the Court’s Final Order of March 1 requires that the Falls Church Anglican vacate the property by April 30, the Diocese of Virginia has voluntarily moved the deadline to May 15.  In addition, the Falls Church Day School, which has served the families of Falls Church for 50 years, will remain at the Falls Church and return to the oversight of the Falls Church (Episcopal).

“We are pleased with the Court’s decision, and are gratified that the Falls Church (Episcopal) may return to their church home,” said Henry D.W. Burt, secretary of the Diocese.
