On March 18, 2021, our 30 year-old organ at Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel was replaced with a new Rodgers organ that was given in memory of Rita Rose. The improved sound of the new organ resonates magnificently in the chapel and brings added beauty to the liturgies sung by the community
Sister Mary Clair, our organist, has enjoyed playing the organ for the past seven years. She is an experienced pianist and studied Music Theory under Dr. Russell Stinson at Lyon College. Through the continued help of Michael Olbash, and hours of practice, she has been able to expand her repertoire with new music to accompany our choir. The new organ made its debut on the feast of Saint Joseph. On Easter Sunday the Regina Coeli echoed all the glory of the Feast in full capacity with the new organ!
We are forever grateful to the generosity of Rita Rose (†2020) who will be remembered with every song played in the choir loft. Legacy gifts are a wonderful way to be remembered in prayer through the graces of your support to our monastery.
