Music Position, St. Louis

Here is a fascinating opportunity:

The Oratory of St Francis de Sales, St. Louis, MO, respectfully requests inquiries for the position of Director of Sacred Music and Master of the Choir

At the generous invitation of His Grace, The Most Reverend Raymond L. Burke, Archbishop of St. Louis, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest has established the Oratory of St. Francis de Sales. By this decision he has opened for us the door to one of the most beautiful churches of the whole archdiocese that is a very fitting place for the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the other sacraments according to the rites in use in 1962.

The magnificent neo-gothic building of St. Francis de Sales Oratory houses a three manual pipe organ in the rear gallery. Additionally, a choir is to be formed to assist in the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Inquiries may be directed to the Reverend Karl Lenhardt, Vice Provincial for the Institute in the United States and Rector of the Oratory at

As the Most Reverend Archbishop has invited us to begin this work here we in turn invite you to consider being a part in the mission of this new oratory.
