International pop star Katy Perry is at the center of a legal battle between a Los Angeles Archbishop, who's trying to sell a Catholic convent, and two nuns who've decided to sell their former home to a buyer whose bid is $1 million higher than Perry's offer.
Perry, the entertainer who was named No. 3 on Forbes' recent list of the highest paid celebrities in the world, said she's prepared to pay Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez $14.5 million for the former Catholic convent in the the Los Feliz neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles that she wants to turn into her home, according to The Los Angeles Times. Perry's plans, however, are being thwarted by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who believe the convent is theirs to sell and already struck a $15.5 million deal with restaurateur Dana Hollister.
While 52 Immaculate Heart sisters once lived on the property that Perry has reportedly been eyeing for three years, Sister Catherine Rose told the Times that many were moved out of the property "against their will" in 2011. The nuns said they gathered their money collectively to purchase the property at a discounted rate from a benefactor decades ago and worry that if the diocese completes the sale with Perry, the sisters will not see any of the money which is needed to cover their living expenses. more >>

WESTMINSTER, Calif. — Musical pioneers who were at the forefront of the Jesus People Movement in the 1960s and '70s performed a half-day long reunion concert held at Calvary Chapel Pacific Coast earlier this month. While some may have hoped for a revival in a more public sense, the event transformed into an intimate look at a family of virtuosos who love Jesus, each other, and their ministries.
Legendary rock and blues vocalist and harmonica player, Darrell Mansfield, told this reporter before the Jesus People Reunion concert began that perhaps this is what God wanted all along. Jesus might not be so much interested in a revival on some grandiose scale, but on a personal level with each of us, individually.
"To me this is a high school reunion and Jesus," Mansfield explained. "I spent so many years touring with these men and women of God that serve the Lord. I have a lot of great memories — globe trotted over the whole world. To be here is a blessing." more >>
