The vestry is the lay governing body of the church that helps the Rector implement our vision and mission.
We have 17 volunteer vestry members who are elected to serve three-year terms. New vestry members are nominated and elected at the Annual Parish Meeting in January, five members each year in rotation. The vestry devotes a great deal of time to overseeing the operations of the church, and each member makes a personal commitment to support the parish’s welfare.
The Rector is the leader of the Vestry and presides over its meetings. The rector appoints a senior warden from the vestry to serve as chief advisor and collaborator on implementation of programs. A junior warden is selected to focus on parish buildings and grounds, and a treasurer oversees church finances. The Rector appoints a non-voting Clerk of the Vestry who maintains meeting records.
