The Vestry is the governing body of an Episcopal Church, elected to represent the people of the Parish. At St. Andrews, our vestry is made up of twelve Parish members, the Senior and Junior Warden (similar to President and Vice President) and the Rector. The Wardens and Vestry members are elected at the Annual Parish Meeting, and serve three-year terms of office.

The Vestry is responsible for all church property and assets, approves the budget, and authorizes major expenditures. The Vestry calls (hires) the Rector, with the approval of the Bishop, and sets the Rector’s salary on the recommendation of the Wardens. The Rector, in turn, hires and supervises all other Clergy and church staff, and has canonical responsibility for the liturgy and worship programs of the Parish.

The Vestry meets monthly (every third Tuesday) to discuss, reflect and take action on the many important aspects of Parish life. It consists of 12 members of the Parish, the Senior and Junior Wardens, the Secretary, the Treasurer, and the Rector. The Wardens and Vestry members are elected at the Annual Parish Meeting, and serve three-year terms of office. It is important to the Vestry that all parishioners feel welcome to share their thoughts and ideas about God’s vision for us as a Christian community, and about your ideas for St. Andrews.


Vestry meeting minutes are posted on the bulletin board outside of the Church office.

Parishioners are welcome to attend Vestry meetings.  Please feel free to contact our vestry members with any questions you may have.
