Paul R. Marchesano on January 13, 2021:

Known from a fundraising document from the church: "A state-of-the art Wick’s pipe organ was installed in 1951. There are 1046 pipes with one valve each, which are electronically controlled. They range in size from 16’ long and 1’ in diameter to 6” long and ¼” in diameter and relied on air from a fan system in the basement."

"1984 - A solid-state switching system was installed to control the air flow for the Wick’s pipe organ."

Clearly the organ technicians did not help edit the information about the organ!

The church had a c. 1919 Moller organ and Wicks likely reused some piepwork from the original organ since some of that pipwork made it to Sts Boniface & James.
