The Vestry

Say hello to the lay leadership team at St. Mark's.

What's a Vestry?

The Episcopal Church uses the term vestry to refer to our body of lay members elected by the parish to run the business of a church. Members of the vestry are elected at the Annual Meeting in January of each year and serve for a three-year term. The Vestry has ultimate responsibility for church finances, buildings and grounds.


Two members of the vestry are elected by vestry membership to serve in the role of Senior Warden and Junior Warden. The Senior Warden serves as the primary liaison between the Rector and the Parish. The Junior Warden has over site of parish buildings and grounds.
