Originally installed in 1955 as 3/14 with 17 ranks prepared-for, including 2 Great stops, 4 Swell stops, 1 Pedal stop and 3 extensions, and the entire Choir division; in 1961, Casavant renovated and reconfigured the organ, as well as making many tonal changes that resulted in 38 ranks; restored in 2014 by Létourneau.
