The 5-sectional façade contains notes 1-39 of the Hauptwerk 8' Principal arranged: 7 – 10 – 5 - 10 – 7. The Bosch was replaced at St. Bernadette's with an electronic organ and was subsequently sold to University Temple United Methodist Church in Seattle. It was removed from St. Bernadette's and re-erected in Sander Chapel at University Temple United Methodist Church in 2003. It is installed in the front, left corner of the chapel and replaced a former pipe organ which was a conglomerate instrument once installed in the Seattle residence of C.M. “Sandy” Balcom – founder of Balcom and Vaughan Pipe Organs of Seattle, Washington. That organ was purchased by the Pipe Organ Foundation of Mercer Island, Washington under the direction of Dr. Carl Dodrill, and was re-installed at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Issaquah, Washington.
