Comments: Carbrini Church is not a historical place. The building is flawed and whoever design the building did a terrible job (leaky roof from day one).

Why should Holy Cross want to keep such an ugly building? Why should Holy Cross want to use a building with a leaky roof? Why shoud Holy Cross want to spend money on a "money pit due to the result of long-deferred maintenance and inadequate heating and air-conditioning systems" (Clarion Herald, July 29, 2006, page 3)?

The leaky roof, which has been leaky since day one, will also be danerous to the students if Holy Cross moves to the area and is force to keep the church. If you do not think it will be danerous, pour a pucket of water on your floor and than have a party at your house. Watch how many people will fall due to the wet floor. Do you really want to put kids in a danerous situation?
