Database Manager on April 27, 2014:

This organ was originally built in 1959 for the Franciscan Seminary of Theology in Teutopolis, Ill. In 1969 the seminary was transferred to St. Pascal-s Friary in Oakbrook, Ill., and the organ was purchased (for $8,000) by St. Jude Catholic Church, New Lenox, Ill. Wicks was contracted to move and rebuild the organ (for $5,364). In 2001 the organ was returned to the Wicks Shop for refurbishment and upgrading while a new church building was constructed.
