The St. Mary’s 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.
Vestry members are elected at each annual meeting in January to replace members whose term is 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 current vestry is made of of the following members:
