On November 7, 2021, The Rt. Rev. John Taylor, Bishop Diocesan for the Los Angeles Diocese of the Episcopal Church, presided at a very joyful dedication of the rebuilt All Saints by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Montecito. The dedication of the new organ was part of the ceremony and festivities. Nelson Huber, Organist Emeritus and consultant for the Monarke organ project played for the service.
A beautiful video tells the story of the rebuild project.
On Monday, November 15, 2021, Nelson Dodge hosted Marco Van De Weerd and Rene Van Hoef, Global Organ Group CEO and Worldwide Sales VP respectively, for the first stop of their first visit to the United States since travel restrictions were lifted.
