Help our Parish restore the musical beauty of the Holy Liturgy at St. Josaphat!
The organ at St. Josaphat church was destroyed by extreme rain and a leaky roof in November, 2018. Despite efforts to keep the instrument going, it was beyond repair. A pipe organ, especially in an historic church like St. Josaphat, which celebrates a traditional Liturgy, is one of the essential elements of a proper Holy Mass experience. Currently, we are using an $800 Yamaha Digital Keyboard for music at St. Josaphat - Holy Masses and Weddings. This could be correlated to using a card table for the altar of the Holy Eucharist.
A proper instrument is desperately needed. If each of the keys of the new organ (2 manuals at 61 keys each, and 32 pedals) is purchased at $200 each, it will help us raise the approximately $30,000 needed to properly replace this instrument with a proper instrument to support the beautiful music at all Masses in the church. Bless you for your generosity!
