Please, support us in the restoration of the Jules Anneessens organ!

The organ has been gracing liturgical and pilgrimages weekly, and daily at times of the Feast of the Holy Blood and the Procession of the Holy Blood. No wonder then that parts of the organ are in need of restoration. To enhance performance the Confraternity would also like to add a few new timbres, such as Basson-Hautbois 8, Quinte 3, Fourniture, Violoncelle 8 and Viole 4.

Do you want this beautiful organ to remain playable? Please support this heritage project with your donation. Your gift is tax deductible from € 40 per year. You will receive an official certificate from us with which you can recuperate 60% of your donation through your taxes.
