In 2013, in partnership with consultant Peggy Kelley Reinburg, St. Benedict commissioned Berghaus to build an all new electric-slider action instrument. It was to be housed in a loft specifically built for a pipe organ when their new church building was constructed a few years prior. By June 2012, the 2 manual 34 rank instrument was completed and has been used in Latin Mass and for regular feature performances ever since.
