Cabrini
Comments: One question -- What will happen to the church if HC does not move in? Answer: Further detoriration into a state if disrepair.

We have a 2 options -- Make the site a vibrant portion of the community with HC, or stick to some idealistic vision that someone will actually refurbish the church.

I understand and respect HC's decision to not be burdened with the upkeep of this church. This church will die with or without HC... hopefully the "tear down" decision will be based on the best interest of the community and Orleans Parish.
