Note transferred from a duplicate page. Jim Stettner on February 19, 2021: The congregation disbanded in 2020 and the property was sold to another congregation who did not want the organ. The organ was removed in 2020 by the Pipe Organ Foundation of Mercer Island, Washington assisted by organ builder Tim Drewes. It will be relocated to one of two Catholic Seminary chapels in Palo, The Philippines.

Database Manager on May 07, 2007:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- As originally built, this organ was designed to fit into a right corner - having a front and a left side. The facade was three-sectional containing 27 pipes arranged: 8-11-8. The pipes were stenciled, and the left side was a simple "window pane" wooden grille with cloth covering. As reinstalled in Seattle, the organ was placed in the front, left corner of the sanctuary, so the former left case became the right side. It was altered to have a 3-sectional facade of 17 dummy pipes arranged: 5-7-5. The case had to be narrowed to avoid covering the front windows, the the front facade was changed to 19 pipes in 3 sections arranged: 4-11-4. The shape of the original facade was altered slightly, and the added right-side facade is a smaller imitation of the front facade. The pipes were re-painted white with gold mouths and a gold band at the top. All manuals stops are divided into treble (37) and bass (24). The 8' Open Diapason is the only unenclosed rank - with the first 19 en facade and operated by tubular-pneumatic action. The original 8' Aeoline was replaced with a used Hinners 4' Principal - reportedly from a church in Spokane. The drawknobs still say Aeoline.
