||If the city is to move forward, sacrifices must be made. Not only is this church an eyesore to the neighborhood but there is no longer a parish to support it. It should be torn down and Holy Cross should be allowed to re-establish its school on the site. Holy Cross represents the futre of that neighborhood. If not allowed to take over this site, the current church and buildings will continue to be a detriment to the rebuilding efforts of this area. Holy Cross is a proven successful institution that has existed for more than 125 years in the Lower 9th. It WILL be the driving force in bringing this part of our city back to life.
