Comments: As a Holy Cross parent I am very concerned. When Holy Cross announced that it needed to relocate we the parents where asked our opinion of where we should go. Hands down the great majority said stay in New Orleans. From it's beginning over 125 years ago the mission of Holy Cross School was to the education and service to the young men of New Orleans. Am I the only one who to see the irony that a city in need could lose a 125+ institution in order to protect a building that was built about 50 years ago?Is it a unique structure? Sure! But it has no one to care for it. I don't hear those who want to preserve it offer to pay for all upkeep and future maintainence. Holy Cross on the other hand is nurturing tomorrows leaders, and we the parents and those alumni are stepping up and are willing to pay and care for our school. Our city and our children deserve a furture, a "significant structure" does not.
