Kilgen Organ Restoration and Lower Level Improvements

…Father Phelan was at St. Augustine’s in 1884 when the organ was delivered to and installed in St. Augustine’s.

Work has begun on restoring the historic Henry Kilgen Organ. We have been incredibly fortunate in attracting the interest of Charlie Ruggles in the restoration. Please visit his website at; you will be glad you did! Below are pictures taken during the dismantling of the organ in order to transport it to his studio. The organ will return to St. Augustine’s in time for our re-dedication in September, 2013.
