The organ was moved to the congregation's new sanctuary in 1957; a recent notice on the church website of an upcoming organ recital says: "Each pipe of our 1939 Casavant organ has been retuned and the whole organ has been refurbished, rebuilt and digitilized. This will be a wonderful way to hear how our new organ sounds."
