Database Manager on July 17, 2013:

Updated through online information from Bruce Warren. -- Organist. - Removed organ when the chapel was demolished. Pipes were moved across the street to Holy Name Parish where some of them replaced 1960's additions to the 1917 Austin in that location. The console was used to make playable a pipe organ in Wisconsin that had been replaced by an electronic. However, the pipes had been left in place, so the organ was revived. The Austin was a stock model in its own free standing case in the balcony. The Austin chests went down with the building.
