Vestry

Under the Canons of the Episcopal Church, the Vestry of St. John’s Parish 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 elected by the Parish. The twelve members serve staggered terms of four years and the Senior and Junior Wardens serve one-year terms.

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/Registrar, the Treasurer and one or more Assistant Treasurers. These Parish officers are appointed by the Vestry annually.
