Name: Carolyn Scanlan
City: New Orleans, La
St. Frances Cabrini Church 5500 Paris Ave
Comments: I saw the inside of Cabrini Church. Very little damage. The gold dome over the Risen Christ was clean and bright (no mold) So were the Stations of the Cross on the walls. They appeared to have not even been touched by the water. Many of the pews were still standing. There are pictures of the interior showing this but they have not been shown. To say the Church was damaged beyond repair is a blantant lie. It had less damage than my house and my house is being repaired. The damage occured when Holy Cross began to demolish the Church. The Beautiful Altar was broken and the Baptisin Font was also broken. Someone should be responsible for repairs to these items but I don't hear any offers.
