Each Episcopal congregation has a Vestry and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is no different. The Vestry is an elected group, similar to an executive board for many other organizations.  The Vestry has three primary responsibilities: to watch over parish finances (including stewardship, finances and spending, planned giving, and fundraising), look after the parish buildings (including improvement and construction), and to choose those who will fulfill positions of leadership and representation such as the rector, convention delegates, and others. The Vestry also acts as an advisory council to the rector of St. Paul’s.

The members of the Vestry are lay members of the church, elected at an annual parish meeting. Each member serves a 2 or 3 year term and must be a member of good standing in the parish. Members attend a monthly Vestry meeting, as well as other meetings and retreats.

Also at the annual meeting, the membership votes to elect a Senior and Junior Wardens. Wardens are the chief stewards and servants of the congregation who must serve as examples of faithful parish members and who do their best to donate their time, talent and treasure. Wardens fulfill a variety of responsibilities, depending on what the Vestry has delegated, the needs of the rector, the wardens’ own interests, etc. In almost all cases, the Wardens take charge of legal responsibilities for property and contracts, fiduciary concerns and congregational interests.

The vestry of St. Paul’s Church usually meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 5:15 p.m. in the Parlor. Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are open to members of the congregation.

The annual parish meeting is held over lunch on the last Sunday in January.
