Music Director

Title: Music Director

This position is responsible for music at all liturgical and non-liturgical celebrations; the scheduling and preparation of cantors and musicians, development and training of choir members; and all administrative functions associated with the position.


· Bachelor’s Degree in music or related field (MA preferred)
· Must be a devout Catholic
· Experience with liturgical music in a parish setting
· Proficiency in organ & piano (voice preferred, but not required)
· Personal maturity, desire to grow in self-awareness, and ability to communicate well with pastor and those under your lead.
· Commitment to assisting the faithful to grow in understanding and appreciation for the Sacred Liturgy and the true role of sacred music according to the traditions and teaching of the Church.

The formal responsibilities are below, but here’s a snapshot:

We believe Incarnation Catholic Church is the best of both worlds when it comes to parish life! We incorporate Latin, (but would love to do more chant & polyphony), have adoration every day, 1st Saturday devotion, Corpus Christi processions, reverent liturgies, & mostly organ during Mass with some piano. But we also love praise & worship Holy Hours, incorporate prayerful contemporary worship songs in the Mass, and are a very joyful, warm community. Whether traditional or contemporary, we would like prayerful pieces with sound Theology. We currently have a choir, children’s choir, professional cantors, a regular cellist, and a beautiful grand piano. We have been printing a weekly worship aid in the bulletin, so you would not be bound to one source for music.
