Vestry

St. Paul’s Vestry is the legal governing and decision-making body of the church, consisting of the Rector and 12 elected lay representatives who serve three-year terms. Four new members are elected each year.

The Vestry’s duties include calling the Rector, approving the budget, making policy and approving expenditures. Each Vestry has a Senior and Junior Warden, both elected from among members of the Vestry by the Vestry itself.

Summaries of Vestry meeting minutes are posted online.
