Database Manager on September 19, 2005:

On-line update from Roger Chingas -- The present building is now closed by the diocese as a church and three parishes merged, using one of the other church facilities. It is however, taken over as a not for profit known as St. Anne's Arts & Cultural Center. ... I saw the Moller organ about four years ago. It was not working. Much of the Great pipework was removed to accomodate the speakers for an Allen electronic instrument installed at least 10 years ago if not longer. The not for profit organization will probably not have the funds to rebuild the organ, since the exterior fabric needs a great deal of work
