affected:
St. Francis Cabrini Church
Comments: How many of you laughed when FEMA said they would make a decision quickly? The people who are so worried about perserving this church have done NOTHING with it since the hurricane. It sits there, like the majority of this city, rotting. Holy Cross is willing to rebuild the entire site, and make it a catalyst for the recovery of the neighborhood. No one in New Orleans wants to see us lose its architectural history and diversity, but there comes a time when it's just not possible to save everything, and that time is now. Take down the church, and let Holy Cross proceed.
