Name: Sharon S. Mole
City: New Orleans, LA 70122
Cabrini Church on Paris Ave.
Comments: Holy Cross is desperately needed in the Cabrini neighborhood. Without this new building project and the life it will bring into this devastated area, in the form of young boys, teachers, activity, and ultimately commerce; Cabrini will be a foolish looking 60's building in a sea of desolation and mud. It is impossible to believe that anyone would be so foolish as to designate this church as a historic monument in a city that does actually have so many truly historic monuments, and historic churches. Additionally,Holy Cross is a New Orleans institution, and has been for decades. It is terrible to think that an outside entity, like FEMA, that has already participated in causing this city so much pain would, again, step in and deprive us of yet another true New Orleans institution, through the time consuming waste of a muddled bureaucracy.
