Marine City Historical Events

November 2004
The Hook Organ is 100 years at Holy Cross
The three manual 1861 Hook Organ was purchased by Holy Cross in 1904. The 100 years of its ministry was celebrated with music from the last 1000 years of the Church, including works of Cesar Franck, J.S. Bach, and chant-based pieces of Marcel Dupre and Maurice Durufle. A free recital was presented by Daniel John Susan at Holy Cross Church on Sunday, 14 November 2004.

Holy Cross Church is an architectural jewel which provides an inspiring home to the congregation, as well as a perfect setting for the Hook organ. The combination of good acoustics, beautiful decoration, and a brilliant organ by a great 19th century American organ builder come together to make Holy Cross an exquisite artistic expression of the faith.
