St Frances Cabrini Church
Comments: I am a 74 year old widow living in my trailer. I need my church and my Parish. I find it very hard to understand how people who are not members of my Parish or my Catholic faith can demand that my Church be torn down and accuse me of be an obstructionist. Although I am a member of Cabrini Parish for 54 years no one contacted me about any meetings to discuss the fate of my Church. Apparently only a select few who supported the destruction were contacted. Most of my peers do not have phone service, use cell phones or computers. They were not contacted either. Is it because we want our Church saved? Holy Cross will not be a help to us. We are rebuilding anyway. What we need is phone service, grocery, vacant lots cleared. When is that going to happen.
