Database Manager on March 06, 2010:

Updated through on-line information from Larry Wheelock. -- According to organist Karen Beaumont, who served the congregation for 20+ years, the instrument is extant but unplayable. The congregation has used a large electronic for several years. In July 2009, the priest decided that professional music staff was not needed and Karen was dismissed. She has not been replaced and there is no word of a search in progress.
