St. Francis Xavier Cabrini
Comments: I would first like to say what wonderful memories I have of Cabrini church. It is a truly spectacular place that I remember with great fondness. I went to school there along with my sister, brother and cousins. My father and his 2 siblings also attended St Francis Cabrini. We have all been baptised there, received our First Communion there, were Confirmed there, had weddings there as well as countless other celebratory events. We attended mass there weekly.
That being said, I would like to say that nobody should stand in the way of progress of a school for our displaced children. They have been through enough. The future of these boys is far more important than preserving architectural significance. All of us who have had this church as part of our lives will always have our memories. Holy Cross should be here now.
