Update – Purchasing a New Organ

It is time for me to give you an update on our efforts to purchase a new organ for our church. The decision on what organ we will buy will be made this fall. The major factor in making that decision will be how much money we will be able to spend. So far through our very successful Catholic Services Appeal, our parishioners have pledged $415,885.00 that will go entirely toward our new organ. This is outstanding! This is a wonderful statement of the goodness and generosity of our parishioners. If you have not made a donation and would like to, just see me or use one of the CSA envelopes on the counter in the narthex of the church or at the hospitality center. A few more donations will help the cause.

A week ago I finalized the make-up of the Organ Committee. This is a committee I will rely on very heavily that will lead to the final decision and will see through the entire installation process. The Committee has five members. They are: Joseph Balistreri who is a member of the Archdiocese of Detroit Worship Office and the music director at the Blessed Sacrament Cathedral; Dr. Olkukola Owolab who is a music professor at the University of Michigan; John May who is the chairperson for our parish worship commission; Christopher Borowicz who is our music director; and myself, as your pastor.

The first meeting of our Organ Committee will take place on Wednesday August 8. A number of meetings will take place before we will be able to make a recommendation on what organ will be the best for our parish. This recommendation will be passed on to the Archdiocesan College of Consultors for their approval before it is sent to Archbishop Vigneron for the final decision. There is much to do yet—keep us in your prayers—and I will do my best to keep you informed as this unfolds.
