In the Chicago, the OCA got its multi-million dollar on LaSalle street (a BIG real estate address here) and Christ the Savior Church for a dollar because the dying sect of the Episcopalians wanted to make sure the building stayed a Church, a REAL CHURCH.
On a recent thread I commented on coming across what I think was a Patriarchal Parish, which is now a condo called "The Church," complete with copulas. (If it is the parish I think, all the icons etc. were shipped to Russia for a newly opened parish there).
God bless the Church in Australia!
