Updated by Steven Bartley, naming this as the source of information: Baltimore Sun Paper 23 May 1955: pg8. Additionally, Steven Bartley listed this website as a source of information: http://www.nativitycedarcroft.org/?page_id=25.
In 1955 during a fuel oil delivery a fire broke out damaging the chancel end of the church, and destroyed the organ. Several months later a new church building was being built, next to the original building. In this new building a Wicks organ was installed. Nov. 2015 the congregation merged with the nearby "Holy Comforter Episcopal Church", at the Holy Comforter site. It is said that the Wicks organ has been put into storage.
