Updated by Ian Abodeely, who has heard or played the organ.
The organ at Emmanuel Church is thankfully in playable condition and is used at all services. The hope of the congregation is to eventually restore the instrument to its original specification and state. All interested in visiting the instrument should contact the parish office, which will gladly arrange it.
