Name: Robert Favret
City: Metairie, La.
Comments: My grandfather, father, uncles, my brother and I graduated from Holy Cross High School. Actually I had a great uncle who graduated from that institution when it was called St. Isidore's College. I grew up in Lake Vista, St. Pius X parish which is the neighboring parish to St Francis Cabrini and I frequently attended daily mass at St. Francis when Msgr. Frey was there and Fr. Brou. So I have roots in both communities but the concern for the architectural significance of "The Church" is questionable to say the least and pales to the importance of the rebuilding of Holy Cross High School. A decision has to be made to create a new high school campus that will support the rebuilding community and abandon the past that serves no purpose today.
