I'd be taking a hit financially to start, but if this develops right, it could get better. Here's the situation...
Small church in a hick town in the Fall River Diocese, will soon merge with the other Catholic parish in the opposite side of town. All operations will (as far as I can gather) move to the parish I'm looking into as a result.
The parish has no choir, but they will eventually want one developed - probably after summer break at this point. It seems to me they want someone who 1) can develop a music program from scratch (this would NOT be a first for me, and to me it's often better than walking into something already established), 2) can play the organ like an organ (immediate need), and 3) appreciates the Roman Catholic tradition. As for #3, if they're looking to build from scratch, one can HOPE that their definition of appreciation of the Roman Catholic tradition means make full use of it.
The position for now would be part time, paying about half of what I was getting at the ghosthouse, but could become full time, so I'm told. At this point, being out of work for over three freakin' months now, I'm fixing to send this resume and see what happens. If I do get the job, I feel I should take it at least until something full time comes along. It would keep me in practice and get some income into the house other than substitute work.
With the Mass schedule, I'd still be at liberty to keep my extraordinary form duties at St. Leo's.
Finally, the pew book, I just learned, is Heritage Missal, which, believe me, I can work around. If I can work around a Music Issue, I can do Heritage Missal.
Wish me luck. :)
