Family of Dr. Robert Schuller Mourns His Death

GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) -- A public memorial will be held for the late televangelist the Rev. Robert H. Schuller in a plaza outside the glass-paned Crystal Cathedral he built in Orange County.

Daughter Carol Schuller Milner said Sunday the service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, April 20 on the campus of Christ Cathedral in Garden Grove.

After the memorial, Schuller will be buried beside his wife in a private service at the campus cemetery.

Schuller died Thursday. The 88-year-old started preaching in 1955 at a rented drive-in theater. He began a television ministry in 1970 called the "Hour of Power" and later built the cathedral to house his booming ministry.

In recent years, the church was hit by falling membership and filed for bankruptcy in 2010. The Roman Catholic Church bought the cathedral.
