Updated through online information from Mark Caldwell sent to Jim Stettner in Facebook Messenger. -- "They are dismantling the instrument this morning (Mar. 26, 2020) and removing it to the Reuter factory for storage. St. Mary's is going to soon be erecting a new edifice. The present 8-rank Reuter is being combined with the organ that was in FUMC, Pittsburg, KS, which the late Roger Banks and his bride purchased to donate for the new instrument at the "new" St. Mary's. There will be other pre-owned pipework incorporated as well. I think Reuter has been in close contact with Mrs. Banks (who is the longtime organist at St. Mary's) regarding the design of the new instrument."
