FEEDBACK from St Francis De Sales

St Francis De Sales in Island Bay approached the Foundation in early in 2010 for assistance in replacing their 45 year old electronic church organ which was fast approaching its final days.

They were presented with a unique opportunity to purchase a small pipe organ from a Methodist church in Christchurch. The price was extremely reasonable (almost half the cost of what it would be to upgrade their existing organ) and it was structurally compatible with the space it would fill at St Francis De Sales. As many will know of St Francis De Sales the organ is a vital accompaniment to the exquisite choir, both being a long standing and loved part of the Parish. The replacement organ will ensure they continue far into the future, enriching and giving value far beyond any dollars spent.
