property
affected:
St. Francis Cabrini School and Church
Comments: It is true that SFC was a special part of this community and in many ways served as the hub of a community wheel. The people in the community made it special, not the so-called unique architectural design. Having frequented this structure for 35 years, I do not recall the bricks and mortar as making it a special place. I recall the generations of families that attended this church. I recall the fairs and dinners that took place at this church. Perserving the building will not bring the community back. Clearly, the Archdioces has not priortized SFC. If Holy Cross wants to make this location their new home, I am all for it. This will help bring back the community that SFC was a part of.
