Director of Music
The Chapel is seeking a part-time Director of Music. Reporting to the Rector, the Director of Music oversees the parish’s music ministries. The Chapel of the Cross is a growing suburban Episcopal parish serving ~850 members with an average Sunday attendance of ~260. The Chapel offers its parish and community a music and worship tradition based on the Anglican heritage and with great music ranging from plainchant to John Tavener. The Chapel is in a period of transition from its small 100 seat historic chapel to a soon to be finished 400 seat worship space with excellent acoustics, a grand piano, and a contract for a new Noack pipe organ to be delivered in December of 2021 (see attached for more info). The adult choir is comprised of 12-14 singers, including a paid quartet. Weekly services include hymnody, psalmody, organ music, choral music and occasional instrumental guests.
The Chapel also seeks a full-time Parish Communicator. Reporting to the Rector, the Parish Communicator coordinates the Chapel’s various communications efforts including worship bulletins, electronic newsletters, website, and social media (Facebook, Instagram). The Communicator is also the initial contact person for parishioners and visitors in the office and/or over the telephone. The position requires strong interpersonal, organizational, and hospitality skills coupled with proficiencies with computers and standard software programs, including website CMSs. Familiarity with the Episcopal Church, especially her liturgy and worship, is a plus, but not required. Previous communications, desktop publishing, website development, and/or social media experience is also a plus.
