St. Frances Xavier Cabrine Church
Comments: It is time that we start thinking about the current students of Holy Cross and stop the delay in providing them with appropriate facilities in which to attend school. These young men have gone to school in Baton Rouge at night for 3 months, at Cabrini High School in the afternoon/evening for 7 months and modular classrooms located in the parking lot of the Dauphine campus for the past 6 months. While the HC administration has done their best under the circumstances to provide a meaningful place in which to learn and have the middle and high school experience, these students continue to go to school in less than optimal conditions. Enough is enough with the delays. If the Archdiocese of New Orleans and the parishioners of St. France Cabrini have given their approval of the demolition of the church, this should be proof enough that it is not a historically significant structure. Hopefully, the process can continue to move forward so that at least my oldest son can have one year of high school in a nice facility.
