Wyoming Catholic College seeks to hire a person who is capable both of teaching the music courses (see the Fine Arts page of our website for a description) together with at least one other subject in the pre-set curriculum, particularly Art History and Humanities, and of leading the College’s sacred music program. The combined position is full time.

The applicant must have already completed at least a Masters degree in music, preferably a doctorate. Especially desired is a candidate who has benefited from a traditional liberal arts education that will enable him or her to teach music with a sympathetic awareness of the principles, methods, and Great Books of other disciplines. A well-developed sensitivity to the spiritual and religious dimensions of great art will make the applicant more suitable to the overall educational mission of Wyoming Catholic College.

The applicant should have the ability to lead the sacred music program, in keeping with the language of the Philosophical Vision Statement: “Wyoming Catholic College will establish and cultivate a proper campus culture through the liturgy, sacraments, and music of the Roman Catholic Church integrated into the life of the College.” The mixed choir, a popular extracurricular activity that has been running for ten years, sings a wide repertoire of choral music by great composers such as Palestrina, Victoria, Tallis, Byrd, Bach, Mozart, and Bruckner. The Choir rehearses once a week and sings twice a week at Mass. For its part, the Schola Cantorum prepares and performs Gregorian chant for the collegiate liturgies.

The applicant should understand and agree with the vision and mission of Wyoming Catholic College as articulated in the Philosophical Vision Statement and the Academic Catalog.  This understanding and agreement are to be manifested in the letter of intent.

The professor is required to teach a course load of 8–12 hours per week and to run the sacred music program (approximately 4 hours of rehearsal time per week, plus preparations and liturgies). Any overtime is compensated. Faculty at WCC are committed to teaching and serving students as their first and foremost responsibility. At the beginning of each academic year, all Catholic faculty make a Profession of Faith and take the Oath of Fidelity, and non-Catholic faculty make a pledge to respect the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Rank and salary commensurate with degrees earned and teaching experience; salary and benefits competitive.

A letter of intent with curriculum vitae should be sent to the Academic Dean, Dr. Thaddeus Kozinski, Wyoming Catholic College, 306 Main Street, Lander, WY 82520, or by email submission to thaddeus.kozinski@wyomingcatholic.org.

Wyoming Catholic College (WCC) in Lander, Wyoming, seeks a full-time chaplain at our growing institution. Wyoming Catholic College is a vibrant, faithfully Catholic school that combines a rigorous, classical liberal arts education in the great books with an innovative outdoor leadership program. The community is characterized by energetic, intentional pursuit of intellectual, moral, and spiritual formation ordered by the treasury of the Church’s tradition, the patrimony of Western Civilization, and the timeless beauty of God’s creation.

The chaplaincy of Wyoming Catholic College exists as part of the school’s teaching mission. As the school’s Philosophical Vision Statement says, the College “will seek to educate the whole person—the mind, heart, and imagination.” Wyoming Catholic College therefore receives the chaplaincy at four levels: (1) in its general nature as a liberal arts college; (2) in its specific mission of moral formation; (3) in its charism of community life; and (4) in its endeavor to seek not just the true and the good but the beautiful as well. All four levels are implied and intended in the Philosophical Vision Statement’s call for the College to “establish and cultivate a proper campus culture through the liturgy, sacraments, and music of the Roman Catholic Church integrated into the life of the College.”

The work of the chaplain unfolds through his role as a priest serving the community of Wyoming Catholic College, especially in his practice of offering noble liturgy and in his role as a teacher of the faith. Chaplains’ responsibilities include: celebrate mass and other sacraments (e.g., daily confession), lead other daily spiritual practices (e.g., Eucharistic adoration), offer spiritual direction, minister on week-long outdoor trips, run and/or organize retreats, teach (if interested) a theology practicum, and lead students in spiritual or corporal works of mercy.

Each institution has a unique charism. Candidates should read the College’s Chaplaincy Vision Statement as a further description of the liturgical, intellectual, and spiritual emphases of the community we invite the chaplain to share in and foster.

The successful candidate will be a priest in good standing committed to college ministry with a knowledge of or willingness to learn in a great books curriculum, and with ability or interest in the outdoors, and experience or interest in spiritual direction. Ideally, chaplains are capable of saying (or willing to learn) the mass in the Ordinary form and the Extraordinary form, both of which are regularly celebrated. The candidate will serve alongside one other chaplain on a year-round schedule (lighter during the summer).

With a student body of 175, and plans to grow enrollment to 240, Wyoming Catholic College offers chaplains a unique opportunity to focus his ministry with attentiveness and presence on a small community of students, faculty, and staff intent on fulfilling in holiness the institution’s mission.

If interested, or to ask any questions you may have, please contact Dr. Glenn Arbery, President (president@wyomingcatholic.org) or (307) 332-2930.
