This entry represents the installation of a new organ. Identified by James R. Stettner based on a posted Organ Media Foundation video on Facebook; and the builder's website.

Some of the pipework from the previous 1975 Schlicker was retained and revoiced. Other Schlicker components have gone to St. Luke's Episcopal in Baton Rouge.
