St. Paul’s Chapel celebrates the installation of pipe organ

St. Paul’s Chapel celebrates the installation of pipe organ

WNYC reports on the pipe organ new to St. Paul’s Chapel. Follow the link for the audio.

St. Paul’s Chapel survived 9/11 despite being literally across the street from the World Trade Center. It famously became a staging area for first responders, as well as an improvised and moving memorial site.  Now, tourists flock to “the little chapel that stood,” which is the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan.

All this week through Saturday, the chapel is marking the occasion with concerts of various sorts….

St. Paul’s Chapel has a growing congregation of its own — one motivation for a musical instrument for the space.

Check these out.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
