St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church 5500 Paris Ave. New Orleans, LA
Comments: Instead of being so negative about demolishing a perfectly good and beautiful (in my opinion) building, why not take a positive spin on it and incorporate it into the plans for Holy Cross? That would be a win-win situation. The building could be used for other venues as well as a church that would support itself and help to maintain it. St. Frances Cabrini did have a substantial amount of insurance and can use this to renovate and maintain the building. Otherwise, that money will go to the Archdiocese and not for what it was intended. I find that the architects' unwillingness to compromise in this respect - or even consider this possibilty - very unreasonable and self-serving.
