What is a vestry?

The vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property. There are nine Vestry members who are elected for three year terms. The presiding officer of the vestry is the Rector. There are two wardens. The Senior Warden and Junior Warden support the Rector and assist him in managing the affairs of the parish. Other officers include a Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, and a Clerk. These officers may or may not be vestry members. The basic responsibilities of the Vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation; to support the church’s mission by word and deed, to select the rector, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances.

Vestry members are confirmed adult communicants in good standing (confirmed or received; sixteen years old or over; “faithful in corporate worship, unless for good cause prevented,” and “faithful in working, praying, and giving for the spread of the Kingdom of God”).

Vestry Minutes

The Episcopal Church seeks the welfare of all it serves with a commitment to organizational transparency. The Vestry of Ascension also strives for this transparency in our communication as a church and particularly in vestry decisions. The vestry’s secretary will record the meeting minutes, and we allow our parishioners full access to what is discussed, motions that are made, and motions that are carried out. Our vestry is here to serve and respond to any concerns.
