Comments: Please allow the St Frances Cabrini building to be torn down. If you do not let it be torn down, then it is just going to stand as a ugly building that will be unuse becuase nobody will pay for the repair and the upkeep.

Holy Cross said they will not pay for the repair and the upkeep (which will be unfair to the parents that will have to pay for it in tuition).

The Archdiocese of New Orleans will not pay for the repair and upkeep of the St Frances Cabrini Building. They have stated they will not be reopening it.

The ex- parishioners of Cabrini had a hard enough time paying for the upkeep pre-Katrina. I stroungly doubt that the parishioners can pay for the upkeep post-Katrina (they lost some parishioners due to Katrina and I doubt they will get a lot of new parishioners).

Will FEMA pay for the upkeep of the Church until the end of time? I do not think FEMA will unless they want to have a "seperation of church and state" lawsuit on their hands.

The roof has leak since day one. If it could be fix, than why did the parishioners have not fix it in 44 years? Becuase of the leaky roof, it can be danerous to the Holy Cross students if (and that is a big if) Holy Cross did keep it. Leaky roof means a wet floor. Wet floor means people can trip and hurt themselves.

Please do the right thing and allow Holy Cross to tear the building down. Letting the building be torn down is the best choice, both economic reasons and for safety reasons.
