property
affected:
St. Francis Cabrini Church
Comments: Catholic education has been a pillar of stability and a standard of excellence in education in New Orleans for over a hundred years. One of our oldest educational institutions in ours city's history needs a home. I would like to think that the preservation of solid Catholic education for 3rd and 4th generation Holy Cross students would override preservation of a building that will no longer be used.

I attended St. Francis Cabrini for elementary school. I want the spirit of that Catholic education to live on, at that site. And it will not if Holy Cross cannot exist there. Since when did architectural preservation outweigh education of our youth, or furthermore, humanity?
