Under the canons of the Episcopal Church, the Vestry of St. John’s, Lafayette Square is responsible for the economic health of the parish and for providing support for the ministry of the clergy.

The Vestry consists of the Rector, the Senior Warden, the Junior Warden, and twelve members of the Vestry. The twelve members serve staggered terms of four years and the wardens serve one-year terms. Parish elections are held each year in January.

Members of the Vestry serve on the major committees of the parish: Finance, Properties, and Stewardship. The Vestry is assisted by parish officers: the Secretary, the Treasurer, and one or more Assistant Treasurers. These parish officers are appointed by the vestry annually.
