ABOUT THE VESTRY

The vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property. At Grace & St. Peter's there are ten lay members. The presiding officer of the vestry is the rector. 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.
