affected:
Holy Cross School / St. Francis Xavier Cabrini Church
Comments: As a parent of a Holy Cross student, I am strongly opposed to any opposition that would stop Holy Cross School from rebuilding on the Cabrini site. Holy Cross is a landmark and has been a part of New Orleans for over 125 years. After Katrina, Holy Cross had a choice to relocate to either New Orleans or Kenner. After many months of discussions, Holy Cross choose New Orleans. It is very important to the school's legacy to remain in the city. I have seen the architectural designs for the new facility. They are beautiful and would give a much needed facelift to the Cabrini site and surrounding areas. The future of New Orleans are our children and what better way to keep a tradition alive than to have Holy Cross rebuild on the Cabrini site.
