Vestry

St. Paul's Vestry

In the Episcopal church, the vestry members are the ruling committee and legal representatives of the church. They provide leadership and management of the matters of the church under Canon Law. St. Paul's Vestry is composed of 12 non-Clergy members. The Rector is also a member of the Vestry.

Leadership includes tasks such as Discerning a vision for the future, Articulating and Communicating the Vision, Generating enthusiasm and "buy-in" from the congregation, Setting the tone for leadership and serving as an example to the congregation.

Management includes all matters of Budgeting, Establishing and Enforcing Policies and Procedures, Establishing Action Plans and Maintaining Property.

The vestry meets on the third Monday of each month at 6:30 PM on the lower level of the Education wing. Feel free to contact any of the members of the Vestry at any time with issues of church function or anything else on your mind. To get on the agenda for a vestry meeting, contact the Senior Warden.

Vestry members are elected by the congregation at the annual meeting and serve a three year term.

To attend a vestry meeting, just show up.
