MANDEVILLE, La. -- Drama over a new church building in Mandeville continues as the parish's new priest asking to be reassigned.

The archbishop has approved Fr. Michael Schneller's request to leave Our Lady of the Lake in July, a year after his arrival.

The Northshore church is wrapped up in a legal battle with the city of Mandeville over attempts to construct a new sanctuary.

In his request, the pastor told the Archdiocese someone with different gifts would best serve the people through the complex issues facing the church.
