Vestry

The vestry is the parish’s lay governing body that consists of 12 people elected by the parish for rotating three-year terms.

The vestry’s public meeting occurs regularly on the third Thursday of each month. The senior and junior wardens act as executive officers and spokespersons for the vestry and should be contacted in case of emergency if the rector cannot be reached.
