Comments: I am 100 percent behind the demolition of St. Francis Cabrini Church. Although I would agree that the church is unique and a beautiful example of modern twentieth century architecture, we must be realistic about its future. What would happen if it is not torn down? There is no money to renovate the church, and more importantly, no parishioners who would be able to maintain a very costly church. Futhermore, by failing to build Holy Cross School, the neighborhood would suffer a disastrous giant step backward in its effort to rebuild. I am a resident of Vista Park, and I am looking forward to the addition of Holy Cross in our neighborhood.
