The Wardens and Vestry comprise the first and often the most visible line of the laity’s leadership in the parish.

Tending to “things temporal”, the Vestry works within the structure of the Canons of The Episcopal Church, the Canons of the diocese, and NYS law to oversee the parish property, collection and disbursement of funds and the calling and care of a Rector.

Wardens provide Vestry leadership, preside over parish affairs in the absence of a Rector, facilitate communication within the parish and often act as a bridge between a Rector and the congregation.

Both Wardens and Vestry members give sacrificially of their time, talent and treasure, basing their work on a broad foundation of prayer, worship and stewardship.

Wardens are eligible to serve 2 consecutive 2-year terms.  Vestry members are eligible to serve 2 consecutive 3-year terms.
