5500 Paris Avenue
Comments: I was a parishoner of SFC in its heyday and I've witnessed first hand the dwindling attendance at masses and at the school. This trend pre-dated Katrina by at least 20 years.

It's clear that the only hope of re-establishing a viable parish rests in allowing Holy Cross to proceed with their plans. A chapel could be built on Holy Cross campus using items salvaged from the church. This would enhance the school and also much better serve the needs of the parish that can hopefully exist there once again.
