Because the organ is such a treasure, the group is hoping to save it by raising $50,000 to have an organ specialist “take it apart, fix what needs fixing and move her” to an entity that will use it, Anderson said.

“A pipe organ is a living and breathing thing,” he explained. If it is not cared for and played, “it will just die and get to the point where it won’t be affordable to fix.

“All we need is a new home for her.”

For both the concert and Mass, Fillmore Street in front of the church will be closed so that there can be seating on the grounds and in the street to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines.

For the Mass, an altar will be brought out onto the steps.

The goal is to “make a joyful noise unto the Lord,” Anderson said. 

“We don’t want to leave St. Mary’s in sadness. We want to leave in joy.”
