When a 990-pipe organ was installed in St. Patrick's Church in Vancouver in September, the pastor saw an opportunity for a concert series. Now Father James Hughes is making that dream come true. A musical celebration called "990 Pipes" will take place June 14. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
