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).
