The vestry has a responsibility for ensuring that the spiritual mission of the church is maintained, as well as for carrying out the more secular duties related to church property, finances and personnel. The vestry functions under the concept of “shared  ministry", in which the rector and the vestry are part of an interdependent team that involves many other parishioners in a variety of leadership and supportive roles

Duties include:

  • To support and to continuously encourage the members of the congregation to support the programs of the Church and to give generously to support those programs.
  • To review the Vision and Mission of the Church and to establish goals and objectives designed to fulfill that Mission.
  • The Vestry shall transact all of the churches temporal business including appointing Trustees, maintaining the Church’s property, making and executing contracts as required, regulating the use of any graveyard, establishing a Finance Committee, approving budgets and observing Cannon 13 on (Business Methods in Church Affairs).

The Vestry Meets the third Tuesday of each month beginning at 5:30 PM.
