Became a Cathedral in 1933 with the creation of the Diocese of Saskatoon. Casavant electrified the instrument and gave it a new console as their opus 2190. Ensuing modifications over the years include the removal of the original casework and rearrangement of the facade pipes and the replacement/revoicing of the chorus reeds.
