Vestry

In the Episcopal Church, each parish is bound by national and diocesan canons (rules), and governed by a local board comprised of parish members, which we call a Vestry.

At St. Francis, our Vestry consists of 12 members -- the Rector (our Senior Priest), and 11 lay members. The Senior and Junior Wardens assist the Rector in the day-to-day business of the church, and are elected to 1-year terms. The other 9 Vestry members are elected to 3-year terms, with three elected every year. Elections are held and the Annual Parish Meeting every January.

The Vestry meets monthly to discuss the various business and ministry needs and accomplishments of the parish. The Rector chairs the meetings, which are open to all members of the parish, although only Vestry members may bring and vote on resolutions.

The current members of the St Francis Vestry are:
