Holy Cross After Hurricane Katrina

Holy Cross is one of the oldest boys' private Catholic schools in New Orleans. It is located on the Mississippi River a few blocks from the Industrial Canal which did not exist when Holy Cross was founded.
It is the high school alma mater of my father (late 1800's-early 1900's) and my three sons. My grandson will graduate in 2006.
The winds of Hurricane Katrina did minor damage to the school. However, it was the break in the Industrial Canal levee and its subsequent flood that has rendered the school unfit for use.
The class of 2006 were the last students to occupy the buildings on the campus and the class of 2007 attended all classes in portable buildings. The school will relocate but the memories will linger on at this place of hallowed halls and stately oaks. All of the live oaks are registered with the Live Oak Society and named for the priests and brothers who taught there. Thousands of Louisiana young men were educated here and until 1973 Holy Cross was also a boarding school. In the early years of Holy Cross a young man could obtain a high school degree, bachelor's degree and a master's degree from the school.
I have pre-Katrina photos in "My New Orleans" gallery.

If you CLICK ON THE SMALL PHOTO you will get a full screen photo. Scroll under the photo to read the story, also. I photograph with my heart as well as my eye.
