affected:
Cabrini Church, 5500 Paris Avenue
Comments: There appears to ba contradiction in the explanation offered by the FEMA Historical Specialist. On one hand he maintains the building was designed to comply with the findings of the "Second Vatican Council's Constitution on the Sacred Litergy" but he states the "The design predates the Constitution...".

Logic dictates that if the designs predate the Constitution, then the Constutution did not have any influence on the design of the church.

It then become questionable as to what historical significance this church has.

It appears to me the Archeticts are trying to "feather" their own nest. Make this a Historic Landmark will certianly enhance their resume.
