Name: Jackson Southers
City: Shreveport by way of Katrina
Specific
property
affected:
Saint frances Cabrini, Paris Ave
Comments: FEMA there is only one Cabrini in New Orleans, there are many private schools. Those who speak of honoring Cabrini are those who wish to tear it down. You honor something by embracing it. The Archdiocese has chosen to toss aside a treasure. Much could have been done in remediation but the Archdiocese wouldn't allow anyone in the church except those who would remove artifacts and prepare it for demolition. Sometimes you have to step in for the greater good. Photographs fade as memories do and Holy Cross and the Archdiocese have no intent to honor this sacred place; despite their promises to do so. Save this historic place.
