New York City to change rules to allow churches to rent schools

 | 

Congregations in New York City that rent space in public schools will be able to hold Easter services this Sunday despite a ruling on Monday by the U.S. Supreme Court rejecting an appeal from an evangelical church in the Bronx that sought to overturn a ban on after-hours worship services at public schools.

A spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio also said the mayor would work to ensure that houses of worship could continue to rent space like any other group.
