Database Manager on September 01, 2015:

Updated through online information from Fr. George Hafemann. -- The organ is located on the left side of the abbey church, about halfway down the nave. The blower is in a soundproof box behind and next to the organ. The instrument is well-maintained and is used several times daily. I make my annual retreat at Spencer, so I know this first-hand.
