Vestry

Roles and Responsibilities

The vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property. The basic responsibilities of the vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation, to support the church's mission by word and deed, to select the rector, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances.

Elections and Meetings

According to the bylaws of St. Andrew's, the vestry consists of twelve members, elected to staggered, three-year terms at the annual meeting of the parish in January. The presiding officer of the vestry is the rector. A secretary and treasurer are appointed but do not vote. The secretary records the minutes of all vestry meetings and the parish annual meeting. The senior warden, junior warden, and rector comprise the Executive Committee of the vestry. The Vestry meets each month in the Rectors’ Lounge, usually on the evening of the second Monday. Meetings are open to all interested parishioners.

Minutes of vestry meetings of the prior twelve months are posted in public in the church parish hall.
