Pipe Organ

The installation of Christ the King’s magnificent pipe organ was completed in the spring of 2012. ┬áThe organ was built in 1949 by the highly regarded American organbuilding firm Aeolian-Skinner (Op. 1192), and its original home was First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Tucson. Tucson-area organbuilder Michael O’Sullivan restored the organ and installed it at Christ the King.
