Database Manager on April 29, 2012:

Updated through online information from The Very Rev. Richard E. Simpson. -- I am the Rector of St. Mark's Church in Islip, NY and I donate my services at St John's in Oadale, saying a Mass there monthly. I try to bring along a music and we use the Organ for congregational singing. A very long time ago, and electric blower was added, but it appears to be in near original condition and with it original voicing.
