  • Identified through online information from Paul Marchesano. (Database Manager. June 13, 2009)
  • Updated by Colin O'Malley, who gave this as the source of the information: Observation of change of ownership. In 2016 St. John’s sold this church building to St. Mary’s Malankara Orthodox Cathedral, an Indian Oriental Orthodox congregation. From photographs on their Facebook page it appears the instrument is still in place, but I do not know if it is being used in their liturgies. (Thurlow Weed. June 25, 2019)
