From the parish website, I found this note: "In 2008, Father George Ratzmann became Pastor and oversaw the renovation and building of our current church building. The new worship space was dedicated on Dec. 23, 2012 by Bishop Frank Dewane." This may be a close approximation to the Colby installation.

Jim Stettner on January 20, 2022:

From the Colby website: "Prior to the demolition of the old church, R.A. Colby removed the existing II Manual Holtkamp instrument and returned it to our factory for renovation. The new building required an expansion of the instrument and a new III Manual Console was designed to harmonize with the new Chancel woodworking being constructed for the organ casework. The new organ was installed on the main axis of the Nave and incorporates the older Holtkamp Organ in its entirety. The revoiced and expanded instrument proudly serves St. Williams and the entire Naples community."
