Saint John's 2019 Vestry
In the Episcopal Church, the Vestry (Board of Directors) is that group of lay members who are elected by the congregation to run the business of the church, in conjunction with the priest. At St John's, there are nine lay members of the Vestry. They are elected for three-year terms. The Senior Warden (Chair of the Board) is appointed yearly by the priest from among the members of the Vestry. The People's Warden (Vice Chair of the Board) is elected yearly by Vestry members from among Vestry members. The Vestry also includes a Treasurer and a Clerk. Both are elected by the Vestry. Customarily, neither are elected members of the Vestry. The Clerk and Treasurer can participate in Vestry discussions, but they do not have a vote.
