Database Manager on February 10, 2007:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The new church and pipe organ were dedicated on November 25, 1928 by The Most Rev. John T. McNicholas, Archbishop of the Church. In the Dedication Brochure of the church is printed: "A church dedicated to the Church's Patron Saint of Music, must have the finest instrument thereof that its means make possible; therefore you will hear a beautiful large pipe organ [nine ranks with chimes] and echo organ [four ranks] signifying the Angelic choirs in attendance at God's throne."
