Shrine of the Most Holy Redeemer is the largest Roman Catholic Church in the State of Nevada, with seating for over 2,200. It was dedicated on February 3, 1993. Father Manuel Quintero, Rector, has made recent significant changes and improvements to the Shrine, including new Banners and, of course, the organ, which plays a key role in the worship service. Bob Grant was recently appointed Director of Liturgy and Organist. He brings with him years of experience in the Catholic tradition. In June 2018, Robert Tall & Associates, Inc., area representatives for Rodgers Organs, supplied a 3-manual Trillium organ for the installation of the incoming Bishop, George Leo Thomas. Father Manuel Quintero, Rector in consultation with his staff decided the instrument should remain there permanently and that windblown pipes would be added in the Fall. Six pipe ranks were installed in early December, which are both visually and tonally attractive. Design, installation and tonal finishing were accomplished by Dr. Robert Tall, Robert Tall and Associates, Inc., Palm Springs, California Robert Knight, Knight Pipe Organ Company, San Diego and Christian Lentz, Organ Technical Services Las Vegas. On Saturday, April 27, 2019 the organ was blessed at Mass and followed by a brilliant recital featuring Bill Vaughan, Organist and Director of Music, Our Lady of the Assumption in San Leandro, California with a guest appearance by his young student, Tim Warncke.
