Dr. Stephen Borys on January 22, 2022:

I have just purchased the decommissioned/deconsecrated St. Philips Anglican Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We are restoring the church and converting the interior narthex, nave and chancel to a single family residence. The Casavant organ (No. 1273) is in the chancel.
