Mother Church of the Catholic Diocese of Joliet

Welcome to the Cathedral of Saint Raymond Nonnatus

 Full-Time Position Open - Cathedral Director of Music

The Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus is seeking a full-time Director of Music.  The Cathedral is the liturgical heart of the Diocese of Joliet, located in the collar counties just West and South of Chicago. 

The Cathedral parish is a large vibrant community consisting of over 2200 families enriched by a 100+ year proud heritage. 

Preferred candidate will have a degree (Master’s level preferred) in Organ/Keyboard, Sacred Music, or equivalent experience.  The candidate will accompany, lead, and prepare appropriate music for both diocesan and parish liturgies and involve multiple choirs, ensembles, and instrumentalists.  Diocesan liturgies (approximately twelve per year) would need music choices suitable for the dignity of such events held within a Cathedral church.   Parish liturgies (4-5 per weekend) would need music choices that promote the full and active participation of the Assembly.  The candidate needs to be able to embrace the full breadth of the Church’s sacred music from the most traditional hymns to contemporary Catholic music.  The parish responsibilities include weddings, funerals, sacramental liturgies, weekly grade school liturgies, and holy days.

The candidate must be a practicing Catholic, able to work well in a collaborative environment, and be comfortable empowering others in ministry.  Salary is commensurate with experience and education, including full diocesan benefits.  Please send résumé to:

Cyber crime has hit St. Raymond and is hitting dioceses nationwide. If/when you receive an email from Fr. Bill Dewan or Rev. William Dewan with a @gmail account as the sender requesting you to purchase a gift card,  please delete it! It is a scam! This email scam is also using other priests’ names in the diocese asking for money or gift cards. All are being sent from an @gmail account. Parishioners can and should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request they may receive or may have received.
