Episcopal Church


The Vestry is the lay leadership of the church made up of 10 elected volunteer parishioners.  They are the legal representatives and agents of the parish, charged with specific responsibilities by the canons of the Episcopal Church.  They share leadership responsibilities with the Priest-in-Charge.  Their duties are described as:  Discernment of God's call, Identification of new leaders, Stewardship and development of resources, and special duties when a congregation is without a rector.  

Officers of the Vestry are composed of a Senior Warden, a Junior Warden, a Clerk, Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer. The members and officers of the Vestry are elected in January at the annual Parish meeting by eligible voting members of the parish. The Wardens, Clerk, Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer all hold office for one year. Non-officer members of the Vestry  are elected to serve for three years.
