Vestry

Vestry

In the Episcopal Church the laity have a crucial leading role in the governance and decision-making of the church. This ministry is formally exercised through a “Vestry,” whose members are elected by the parish. Vestry members serve three-year terms of office.

Their basic responsibilities are to manage the financial affairs of the parish; to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation; to support the church’s mission by word and deed, to select the rector, and to ensure effective organization and planning. The rector is the presiding officer of the Vestry and selects a “Senior Warden” from the elected members. The senior warden leads the parish between rectors and is a support person for the rector. A “Junior Warden” is elected by the members of the Vestry to be the primary eyes, ears, and voice of the congregation in parish leadership.
