    St. Joseph Catholic Church, located in Williston, ND, is looking for a full-time director of sacred music for the weekend and special liturgies. A qualified candidate will be a skilled organist/pianist and conductor, capable of developing ensembles and cantoring and able to organize, coordinate and communicate with various ensembles. St. Joseph’s is located in one of the most rapidly changing and vibrant communities in North America, impacted by oil and migration.

    We are looking for someone conversant with the broad spectrum of sacred music and interested in developing a program that features chant, sacred polyphony, traditional hymnody and contemporary congregational music. The candidate should be trained with a bachelor’s degree or preferably a master’s degree in music. Fluency in Spanish is not required, although it would be helpful if candidates would be able to sing or chant relevant Mass parts and a few hymns in Spanish.

    Base salary will be dependent on a part/full-time position and experience/qualifications. The salary for a full-time position would be between $40,000 to $50,000 with the opportunity to earn additional income from funerals and weddings, and possibly providing music at a mission parish. We offer a full benefits package including health insurance, 401(K), and life insurance. For more information about our parish, please visit our website at stjparish.com.

    Please submit your resume in confidence to Fr. Russell Kovash at the following email: rkovash@bismarckdiocese.com or pastor@stjparish.com
