Church Vestry

Church Vestry

The vestry is the body within a congregation that, with the clergy, leads the parish.  Vestry members help discern the vision toward which God is drawing our community; articulate and communicate the vision; hold our community accountable for the realization of that vision; and keep the mission of the Church and that of the individual congregation clearly before the parish community.
