Comments: Right now, what that neighborhood needs most is a school to revive it and bring people back. I grew up on Prentiss right across from Cabrini school and church. I went to church there every Sunday as a child. I can understand why people are fighting to keep it. However, it serves no purpose as it is now. My family has moved back after Katrina into the house and neighborhood I grew up in. They're one of the only ones back. Allowing Holy Cross to tear down the church and build its school there would do so much for a neighborhood that could really use the help.
