5500 Paris Avenue, 70122
Comments: People are more important than buildings. This is a very unique situation that our city is in at this time. The opening of Holy Cross school is very important to the rebuilding of this neighborhood. My son was baptized in this church and I taught at this school so both places have significant meaning for me. But I feel at this time that it is more important to help the people of this area to rebuild their neighborhood and their lives. I believe the best way to do that is to tear down the church structure and build a school that will help the community.
