Local Church Retains Its Property

The (Presbyterian) Layman

Posted Thursday, September 15, 2011

The Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeal issued its opinion in the church property dispute between the tiny Carrollton Presbyterian Church in New Orleans and the Presbytery of South Louisiana (PSL). The court adopted the rationale presented by Carrollton and affirmed the trial court’s ruling in favor of the local church.

Mary Koss, Carrollton’s clerk of session, commented that, “Carrollton is very pleased with what we believe is the right decision in this case. We are anxious to have this case behind us and move forward with the business of being the church.

We wanted to do whatever we could to help them.”
