About the Pipe Organ

The pipe organ at St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Parish is a magnificent instrument that fills the church with divine music. It is a true masterpiece of craftsmanship and engineering.

With its rich history and impressive design, the pipe organ stands as a symbol of tradition and spirituality. Let us delve deeper into the fascinating world of this remarkable instrument.


The pipe organ has a long and storied history, dating back several centuries. It originated in ancient Greece and evolved over time, becoming an integral part of liturgical music in churches.

At St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Parish, the pipe organ has been a cherished part of our community since the church's founding in 1850. Over the years, it has undergone various restorations and enhancements while retaining its original charm and beauty.


The pipe organ consists of numerous interconnected parts, meticulously crafted to produce its unique sound. The instrument features multiple keyboards, known as manuals, as well as pedalboards. These allow the organist to control the airflow and produce a wide range of tonalities.

The pipes, made from materials such as wood, metal, or a combination of both, produce sound when air flows through them. Each pipe is carefully tuned to ensure harmonious blends and create a mesmerizing musical experience for the congregation.
