property
affected:
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church, 5500 Paris Ave., New Orleans,LA
Comments: This church has been abandoned by the Archdiocese since the Flood. It was a nightmare to maintain prior to that event.

To me it is far more important to the community that a church not wanted by the Archdiocese be removed in order for Holy Cross to build it's educational facility. This will be an asset to a shattered community as compared to having a derelict building.

In my opinion, (and I am not Christian), the Deity that was worshiped in that church would rather see children being educated in that location rather than having a pile of rubble dedicated to Their name.
