Database Manager on January 11, 2015:

Updated through online information from Alicia Brozovich. -- The organ is in heavy use, being used nearly daily for liturgical services, Masses, as well as regular practice by students and parish musicians alike. The organ is quickly becoming in more need of restoration, but for now it suffices for all parish needs.
