property
affected:
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church, 5500 Paris Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana
Comments: I am a Gentilly resident and enjoyed worshiping at the church prior to Hurricane Katrina. The church is a landmark in an area that is generally devoid of prominent, architecturally significant buildings. The fact that a religious educational institution plans to relocate to the site makes the building ideally situated for adaptive reuse. No doubt the school will need a place to gather for assemblies and worship, and a landmark building currently stands on the site which escaped Hurricane Katrina relatively unscathed but for flood waters. Saint Francis Cabrini Church should be saved.
