Specific
property
affected:
St. Francis Cabrini Church
Comments: I grew up in St. Francis Cabrini Parish. The original church was a Quonset building back in the early 50's. When the new church was built we used to say it looked like 3 sewer pipes with a steeple. Whoever decided this church was architecturally significant should have their head examined. It is no more significant than the original church was. The roof leaks and the exterior is ugly. Put the wrecking ball to it and put it out of it's misery.
