Wyoming Catholic College is seeking a "priest of orthodox faith" to fill the role of Chaplain. Preferably, they say, the priest would have experience with the extraordinary form and Gregorian Chant, according to Shawn Tribe of the New Liturgical Movement.
Wyoming reportedly sent the following email to NLM:
Wyoming Catholic College in Lander, Wyoming, seeks a priest of orthodox faith to care for souls at our growing institution. We are a Great Books liberal arts college with an outdoor leadership component. Our Fall 2011 enrollment was 120, taught by 16 full-time faculty.
The chaplain’s duties include offering daily Mass, hearing confessions, conducting spiritual direction, presiding at Benediction, and leading other devotions from time to time. Wyoming Catholic College places at the center of its campus life the worthy celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in both Forms of the Roman Rite. In keeping with the teaching and example of Pope Benedict XVI, liturgies and devotions are celebrated in a manner that stresses continuity with Tradition. Treasures such as the Latin language and Gregorian chant are well appreciated and widely employed. Ability to celebrate in the Extraordinary Form, or a willingness to learn via a workshop, is a definite plus.
Is this a trend in Catholic colleges? Could be. Just last month the Cardinal Newman Society
The College of Saint Mary Magdalen has long encouraged visiting priests to celebrate Mass in the ordinary and extraordinary form on campus but the recent arrival in September 2011 of the College’s new chaplain, Fr. Neil J. Roy, has now made the Mass in the extraordinary form available on a regular basis, according to the school’s website.
Wyoming Catholic College is included in The Newman Guide
