Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Parish
156 Valley Ave. SW
Grand Rapids, MI 49504 US
Organ ID: 48034
The parish received a proposal from Wicks to expand the organ to 19 ranks in 1987, but that project was never accomplished.
The organ is installed entirely in the south organ case that once housed part of the parish's Kimball organ. The organ retained the Contra Bass pedal pipes that were part of the Kimball organ. In addition, a three-rank mixture was added to the organ at some point (possibly by Mutchler Organ Company). The Wicks console was replaced with a Rodgers console in 2001, and digital stops were added to the instrument.
