City: Notre Dame, Indiana
Comments: I fail to see how the future of Holy Cross, the most significant school in New Orleans, could be jepordized by an historically insignificant and religiously offensive church. Holy Cross graduates have been leaders in New Orleans and the world for over a century. Among the 8,000 Holy Cross graduates are Adolfo Calero, who with President Ronald Regan sounded the death knell for communism in Central America, John Schwegmann Sr. and the saintly Fr. Thomas Barrosse CSC, who led the Congregation Of Holy Cross as its Superior General. The list is endless, from the top plastic surgeon in the world to leaders in law, business and academia. This Church on the other hand, has rendered little value to New Orleans. In fact, it was offensive to most of the Catholics of the city. One literally needed a tour guide to find the Blessed Sacrament. When one weighs the contributions of Holy Cross against those of this church, cearly the outcry should be: "FEMA TEAR THIS CHURCH DOWN!!!!!!"
