Cabrini Church
Comments: The notion that Holy Cross parents should foot the bill to repair and maintain Cabrini Church is ridiculous. If I sell you my home should I then expect you to allow me to continue living in the home that you purchased and in addition expect you to pay my living expenses as well? This is what makes coexistence of the two institutions on the same site impossible. Simply put there are not enough people to fund and maintain Cabrini as a viable active parish. Furthermore, most parents of Holy Cross students do not have the funds to cover the increased tuition which would be required to maintain the existing structure. Most residents in the area including Cabrini parishioners understand this and have chosen to sacrifice their beloved church building and welcome Holy Cross knowing that the influx of people into the neighborhood on a daily basis will benefit the area.
