Faculty are typically required to teach a course load of 12 hours per week (half of which, generally, will be in Latin), to direct one or more theses, and to assist in some administrative duties. Faculty at WCC are committed to teaching and serving students as their first and foremost responsibility. Rank and salary are commensurate with degrees earned and teaching experience; salary and benefits are competitive.

Wyoming Catholic College welcomes applications for this position regardless of the applicant’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability.

A letter of intent, curriculum vitae, and three letters of academic reference should be sent to the Academic Dean, Kyle Washut, Wyoming Catholic College, 306 Main St., Lander, WY 82520, or by email to kyle.washut@wyomingcatholic.edu .

Wyoming Catholic College (WCC) in Lander, Wyoming, seeks a full-time chaplain at our growing institution. WCC 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 engages 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 (if possible) 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 WCC’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 Roman Catholic 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 can say (or be 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 (currently, a priest of the Byzantine rite) as part of a chaplaincy team throughout theyear-round schedule (lighter during the summer). The Chaplains work together to bring about the fullness of the chaplaincy as described in detail by the Chaplaincy Handbook.

With a student body of about 180 and hopes to grow enrollment by 100 in the next five years, WCC offers chaplains a unique opportunity to focus their 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.edu) or (307) 335-4214. For more information on the College itself, please visit the website: www.wyomingcatholic.edu.
