Our Vestry

In the Episcopal Church, the Vestry is similar to a board of directors of a nonprofit organization.  Under the canons, the Vestry "shall cooperate with the Rector...in promoting the spiritual welfare" of God's people, and "shall support the programs of the Church through a commitment to service and biblically-based standard of proportional giving."  The Vestry does not "run" the parish, but serves in an oversight role, constantly considering the integrated bigger picture rather than the details - being cheerleaders who "continuously encourage the members of the congregation to support the programs of the Church and to give generously towards the support of those programs."  Candidates for Vestry also must be confirmed adult communicants in good standing (confirmed or received; sixteen years old or over; "faithful in corporate worship, unless for good cause prevented," and "faithful in working, praying, and giving for the spread of the Kingdom of God").

Nominees should be willing to carry out Vestry responsibilities, including taking a leadership role in the parish, being regularly involved in and familiar with parish activities and events, attending an overnight or all-day Vestry retreat, and attending monthly Vestry meetings.

If you are interested in serving on the Vestry, or want to nominate someone, please contact either a member of our Vestry Nominating Committee, or the Parish Office.  After screening to confirm eligibility, candidates will be invited to attend a one-hour discernment meeting to reflect on their calling to Vestry service before any commitment will be requested.
