2003 - 2005, Marek Cepka
       In 2003 organ builder Marek Cepka from Wronkie, near Poznan, started construction work on an organ on the choir loft at the west wall of the church. The acoustic concept of the instrument (stop list, wind chest and pipe allignments and mixture compositions) was designed by Prof. Bogusław Grabowski, who also had the supervision on the project.

The three-manual organ utilizes a mechanical tracker action for the manuals and pedal and an electro-magnetic action for the stops, allowing a system for adjustable combinations (ger. Setzer). The manuals have a tonal span from C to a3; the pedal compass ranges from C through f1.
During our visit in early January 2005 only eleven stops were mounted and the instrument was not tuned yet. Completion was expected for summer 2005[1].

On 21 June 2005 the organ was consecrated during the holy mass at 18:00 by archbishop Tadeusz Gocłowski. The consecration was followed by an inaugural recital held by Prof. Grabowski. In the weeks following the consecration some minor adjustments to the voicing of some stops and the action must be performed. Also, the mounting of one final stops will be concluded[2].

The final stop list of the organ looks as follows[3]:
