Vestry Committee and Staff

The vestry committee is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property. St. Francis has four members who are elected to three-year terms. The presiding officer of the vestry committee is the vicar.  The senior warden leads the parish between vicars and is a support person for the vicar.  The junior warden has responsibility for the church property and buildings. The treasurer and the register (secretary) are elected by the vestry committee but are not voting members. The basic responsibilities of the vestry committee are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation, to support the church's mission by word and deed, to select the vicar when necessary, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances.
