News » Renovation of the Organ from the Chapel of the Miraculous Icon!
The restoration of the 34-voice mechanical organ located in the Chapel of the Miraculous Icon of Our Lady is taking place. The decision to overhaul the instrument was forced by its deteriorating condition caused mainly by an extremely extensive use of the organ. This relatively young instrument - about 30 years in service, working everyday from early morning till late evening, can compare to an instrument used for 160 years.
The workload together with dirt settling in the pipes and other mechanisms as well as weather conditions effecting the components have made the organ unreliable and necessitated thorough cleaning and repairs.The restoration aimed at improving the instrument, restoring it to its splendor and getting even more out of it so that it helps liturgical singing and enriches prayer anew is hoped to terminate in spring with the inauguration of the overhauled organ at Easter. The renovation would not be possible without the generous help of pilgrims and numerous people of faith in Poland and abroad. For all donations for the renovation Pauline monks express their heartfelt gratitude and ensure of their prayer for donators.
