According to the Parish website, "In 1992, Fr. Pat and the parish council instituted a restoration project in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone of the church. The multiphase project included restoring the exterior of the Church and repainting of all painted surfaces (started in1992 and completed in 1993), refurbishing of the organ (started and completed in 1994; dedicated in 1995), and renovating the interior of the Church (started and completed in 1995)."

This work was done by Schaedle Pipe Organ Services in 1994, and included tonal revision and additions.
