Cabrini church
Comments: Lets think about this. If FEMA designates this church an historical site who is going to support it? The archdiocese said they didn't want to run it. Their is not enough parishioner's in the area to support it. Do we really want FEMA to run it? If they do will they think that all the displaced parishioner's will flock back to Gentilly because they saved the church!!!
I don't see that happening either,since a majority of the replies from the people that supported the church are supporting it to be torn down and redeveloped. Maybe FEMA will get all the tourist that visit to go to the church and light candles and make donations to keep the church operable. I can assure you that want happen!!!!
While it is true that our church's are a big part of our neighborhood's it is the people that are the real heart of our community.
Holy Cross has been educating young boys into men for over 150 years and god willing will do so for another 150 years in this great city.
Please stop delaying the start of a new and exciting foundation to this neighborhood and city that has suffered enough for the past 18 months.
