Name: Gabriel Fertitta
City: Hayden, AL
St. Francis Cabrini Church 5500 Paris Avenue
Comments: Please consider allowing the demolition of this building. The campus of Holy Cross High School was twice as old and historic as this sight, and the Holy Cross Family deserves to have a place they can call their own. The City of New Olreans contains hundreds of churches that are many years older and have much more history than the church at 500 Paris Ave. The Holy Cross Family itself has had a history with this church using it for ceremonies for their students. The Holy Cross Family will certainly honor this great structure through their continued support of the Cabrini neighborhood. Time and effort should be spent attempting to rebuild and renew the historic structures of this city that carry with them far more history and tradition.
