St Frances Xavier Cabrini Church
Comments: What better legacy could we leave then to continue to educate young area men in the deep tradition of Holy Cross School. Holy Cross appears to deparately desire to remain in New Orleans and move forward with this property. Continued debate as to the availability of this property will only continue to frustrate the administration of HC School. Haven't we faced enough frustration? This move would provide a tremendous stimulus for the area, whose future is very bleak without such a project. For those who wish to restore the church and maintain it's place in history I truly sympathize. But I challenge you to search deep and decide what has more historical significance down the road, this building or generations of boys educated by the Holy Cross family, who become men and contribute exponentially to the future of our area. I believe the choice is clear, please allow Holy Cross to move forward with the project immediately.
