The vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property, serving as a sort of Board of Directors for the parish. It is comprised of two wardens and six members, who are elected by the parish at our annual meeting to serve two and three year terms, respectively. Vestry members are limited to serving in the same capacity for six consecutive years. Terms are staggered such that the parish elects one warden and three vestry members at each annual meeting. Following the annual meeting, the vestry elects a treasurer, assistant treasurer(s) and a clerk, all of whom serve one-year terms. The vestry meets monthly throughout the year, except for July and August. Meetings are chaired by the rector. The basic responsibilities of the vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the parish, to support the church’s mission by word and deed, to ensure effective organization, and to manage resources and finances.
