The Archbishop received the recommendation of the Archdiocesan College of Consultors and approved our plan to purchase a new organ for our church. The contracts were signed at the end of November and the down payment was made. We have already made our first monthly payment (for December). The cost of the project is $499,860.00. The planning and approval process went very smoothly because of the support and generosity shown for this effort. I was able to show the Archbishop that we raised all the funds through your donations to the Catholic Services Appeal.
The design and ordering of the technical parts has already begun by the Noack Organ Company. The construction will take place at the company’s site in Massachusetts and delivery will occur next fall. The final stage will be the actual installation that will be completed a year from now. We have been assured we will have the new organ for next Christmas. I ask for your prayers for the continued success of this project.
Fr. Gerald A. McEnhill
