Updated through online information from John Igoe. -- The former Monastery building is no longer associated with the adjacent St. Joseph's parish. The organ is in a gallery of a former chapel, now used for storage. The room has astounding acoustics. The organ was fully playable in the late 1990s at an AGO members' recital.
