Our Pipe Organ

The Friends of St. Cecilia Fund

Now that we have fully restored Casavant Opus 1279, it is essential that we maintain the fine quality of this instrument. Our Pastor, in cooperation with the Parish Finance Council, has agreed to provide seed money to create "The Friends of St. Cecilia Fund." This fund will be used to protect our investment and will fund long –term maintenance needs as well as scholarships and educational opportunities for organ students and future pastoral musicians from our parish.

Time Lapse Removal of Pipe Organ

In November 2016 St. Paul of the Cross began the demolition and removal of their old pipe organ and began preparations for installing a refurbished Casavant Opus 1279 that will be delivered in February 2017. This time lapse video captures the removal of the pipes, wind chests, and casement.
