Paul R. Marchesano on November 19, 2021:

In 1959 a decision was reached by the vestry to purchase a new organ from the Mudler-Hunter Company at a cost of $16,000.00. Some pipes from the previous organ [M.P. Moller Opus 3235, c. 1923] were used. This organ continues to provide us with beautiful music today. The organ was dedicated at the morning worship service on October 24, 1960, and a recital was given on October 30 with Wesley A. Day as recitalist.
