St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church
Comments: FEMA

A truly historic 125 year old educational institution viruses a not-so- historic building. A Church is not a building. People are the Church.

A Holy Cross School education has contributed to the development of many national, state, and local leaders in government, community, and business. Holy Cross men occupy prominent positions such as CEOs, military leaders, educators, etc. The magnitude of the impact of Holy Cross graduates can't be measured. The pre-Katrina graduation class of approximately one hundred young men will grow to triple that size at the Gentilly site. Three times the graduates could possibly triple the impact on the nation, state, city, and community. The school will afford students the opportunity to attend a school with curriculum and technology advancements beyond imagination. The institution will be the envy of students and schools across the United States.

I'm more than 40 years old and don't consider myself historic, but if I were 150 years old then I would be historic!
