Name: Richard Bulot
City: Slidell, Louisiana
Comments: Please understand that the Holy Cross Administration will show great respect in memorializing this church for future reflection of its Parishioners. We all have sacrificed to overcome the effects of Katrina. I would hope that those who have the best wishes of the City in mind, would recognize that both Holy Cross and Cabrini are sacrificing pieces of their history to hopefully breathe new life into the heart of New Orleans. Holy Cross and Cabrini Parishioners, should never have been placed in adversarial positions in the first place. Both have recognized great loss, but this project simply can not work by saddling Holy Cross with the burden of maintaining this facility. Holy Cross is excited about the prospects of re-establishing its traditions while helping revitalize this beloved area of town. I promise that if this church is torn down and Holy Cross is rebuilt in its place, St. Francis Cabrini Church will be gone, but never forgotten...It will now be part of the "New" Holy Cross.
