The Vestry

What is the Vestry?

The Vestry is the governing board of the parish and consists of the Rector, the Wardens, and lay members. The Vestry at Christ Episcopal Church currently has 12 members. Each January at our Annual Meeting the parish elects four new members for three-year terms. Once in place, the Vestry annually elects a Senior Warden and a Junior Warden to serve as Vestry leaders. The Rector presides at meetings of the Vestry, which handles the parish’s business and temporal matters.

As its primary responsibility, the Vestry oversees the parish’s financial health. In partnership with the Rector, it develops and approves the parish annual budget. The Vestry also serves as an advisory council to the Rector, who by church law is the parish’s chief liturgical and pastoral officer.

The Vestry meets the fourth Tuesday of odd numbered months (JAN, MAR, MAY, JUL, SEP, NOV) at 5:30pm in the Conference Room.

The Ministries' Leadership meets the fourth Tuesday of even numbered months (FEB, APR, JUN, AUG, OCT, DEC) at 6:00pm in Moore Hall.
