The Vestry is the committee of laypeople (members who are not ordained clergy) who provide leadership for the parish. They help articulate the mission of the congregation, ensure effective organization and planning, and manage resources and finances. 

Within the Vestry there are two wardens:  a senior warden and a junior warden. The senior warden is the primary elected lay leader of the congregation, and serves as a principal liaison between the parish and the rector. Vestry members are elected at the annual parish meeting and serve terms of three years. The clerk is not a member of the Vestry, but handles the important work of recording all the minutes of each meeting.

The Vestry members are here to help and serve the parish. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please reach out to anyone listed below. They are always open to hearing from parishioners!
