The vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property. Christ and St. Luke’s has 12 Vestry members, presided by the Rector. Vestry members are usually elected at the annual parish meeting, held on the second Sunday of December each year.
There are usually two wardens. The senior warden leads the parish between rectors and is a support person for the rector. The junior warden often has responsibility for church property and buildings. A treasurer and a register, or clerk may be chosen. These officers may or may not be vestry members.
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.
