Jim Stettner on April 11, 2021:

Updated through online information from Jayson Engquist. -- The organ went in (1926) when church was called St. Luke's Catholic Church. It was only renamed as St. Thomas More Catholic Community in about 2010. Gordon Schulz did work (and additions) in 1990, but isn't mentioned (that I could find). So, the original (Op. 1153) should really be ONLY the original ranks. The other should have Scholz additions.
