Name: Bob Varnau
City: New Orleans, LA
Specific
property
affected:
Cabrini Church
Comments: The only thing that makes perfect sense is to have Holy Cross (HC) take over the Cabrinin location and make it the thriving school operation that it has been in the lower 9th for a centry. HC was great for the 9th and will be even greater for the Gentilly area of Cabrini. The church property is not even in the acrhciocese foreseeable future plans and the neighborhhod is a wreck. HC will be the neighborhhod center piece and will help bring back the area and New Orleans on a fast track. It's the perfect relationship for a school with such tradition and history to stay in NOLA doing what it was establishe to do. If Cabrini, especially post Katrina Cabrini, is a historic site, then those responsible for historic sites have missed the boat.
