The Diocesan Director of Music position, at the request of Bishop John Noonan in collaboration with Father John McCormick, rector of St. James Cathedral, is being restructured and combined with the Director of Music position of St. James Cathedral. Approximately twenty candidates applied for the position and the selection process was difficult with so many qualified candidates from which to choose.
Charles Thatcher is appointed as Director of Music for the Diocese of Orlando and St. James Cathedral, effective September 1. Mr. Thatcher currently serves as associate director of music of St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Winter Park. He has been involved in music ministry in the Diocese of Orlando for twenty-one years.
Glenn Osborne will also be leaving his position as Diocesan Director of Music, effective September 1. We are grateful for Mr. Osborne’s gift of ministry and service to our Diocese. We pray for him during this time of transition and wish him many blessings in the years ahead.
