Pipework from the 1941 organ was distributed to various locations, including St. Boniface Church here in Evansville.  The 1941 Wicks organ had 1005 pipes, 30 stops, and 12 couplings. The plaque on the door states that it was a gift of the parishioners in 1941. It was the third organ in the church. The chimes were donated in that same year by local funeral directors, Joseph Schaefer and Son.***
