Historically the vestry is charged with assisting the clergy is overseeing the temporal affairs of the parish. Today, in addition to those responsibilities, the vestry is charged with being leaders in carrying out the mission and ministry of the parish.
The vestry consists of a senior warden, selected by the rector, a junior warden, elected from among the vestry, and seven additional members of the parish. Each year at our annual parish meeting, three new vestry members are elected to serve a three-year term.
