Comments: I grew up a block from St. Frances Cabrini on Athis Street, and attended the architectually "interesting" elementary school on the ground and in the "Towers." My parents' home, like most of 70122, sits in ruins at this writing.
That church roof and its unceasing costs were the subject of many a church bulletin and plea for money.
Its time to let it go. If you try to save everything, you save nothing. Bless it and let it go. Its time for common sense, not nostalgia for the 1960's.
