The Grace Vestry, the governing body of the parish, shares the leadership of the church with the Rector, and consists of members who are nominated and elected by the congregation for three-year terms. They meet to oversee the temporal affairs of the church, as well as to support the Rector and staff in promoting the spiritual welfare of the church. In addition, the Vestry, in conjunction with the Trustees, is accountable for the fiscal responsibility of Grace.
Vestry members are elected at each annual meeting in January to replace members whose terms are expiring. Therefore we have new members each year on a rotating basis. Once in place, the Vestry annually selects a Senior Warden and a Junior Warden to serve as vestry leaders for a one-year term or until the following year’s vestry nominations and election.
The Vestry usually meets on the third Monday of each month in the Conference Room at Grace Parish Hall. Meetings are open to the public and parishioners are encouraged to attend.
The current vestry is made up of the following members:
