Our Pipe Organ

From Ed Eicker, Our Music Director:

I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is, the organ still works. The bad news is that much of the organ doesn’t work, and the portions that do work could soon fail and result in an organ that’s completely unusable. Last fall, Andrea and I began seeking a new maintenance company to service St. Paul’s pipe organ. The company we had been using for 15+ years was becoming increasingly unreliable and it was time to sever ties with them and find one that could better suit or needs. Through research and several recommendations we began working with J.L. Weiler, Inc., a company that not only maintains but also restores pipe organs.

Built on the Rock airs on Relevant Radio the first Thursday of each month 9:30 - 10 a.m. Listen to show archives now!

Parish Educational Endowment

About our Endowment

In 2000, under the leadership of Pastor Fr. Carl Morello, St. Paul established the Parish Educational Endowment Fund.  The goal of the fund is to help keep tuition as low as possible making Catholic education available to all families and to provide scholarships to well deserving and students in need and to assist with other educational needs of the parish. The fund began with a $10,000 donation from the school  walk-a-thon fundraiser.  The fund’s initial goal was to reach 1 million dollars and, until that goal was met, no monies were spent.
