What is the Vestry?

The vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property.  Vestry members are elected at the annual parish meeting.  The presiding officer of the vestry is the rector.  There are two wardens.  The senior warden leads the parish between rectors and is a support person for the rector.  The junior warden has responsibility for church property and buildings.  The basic responsibilities of the vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation; to support the church's mission by word and deed, to select the rector, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to  manage resources and finances.
