Dear Friends of St. Bernard,
Because of the generosity of our parishioners and many people of Akron, the 1905 A.J. Schantz Pipe Organ in St. Bernard Church has been restored.
The Schantz Organ Company of Orrville, Ohio built our pipe organ and installed it in 1905. We are happy and fortunate to have the original creator of this beautiful instrument restore it to its original voice. We have set a date for its re-dedication with a Prayer Service and Organ Recital on Sunday, January 21, 2018 at 3:00pm. This restoration work by Schantz will provide us with another 70-80 years of liturgical music.
We are deeply appreciate the generosity of our many donors who made this possible.The organ fund has been discontinued. We no longer accept donations for this completed and paid for capital improvement. For those who donated for the dedication of a pipe, the 2017 Book of Organ Pipe Dedications is being prepared for posterity.
