St. James' Vestry

St. James' is governed by a Vestry, a board of nine vestry members and two wardens (think of them as chairpersons of the board: one senior warden and one junior warden). There is also a clerk who keeps minutes and records, a treasurer who monitors the finances, and a bookkeeper. The Vestry is responsible for the fiscal health of the parish, and under the direction of the Rector, for the spiritual health as well.

The Vestry meets monthly to conduct the business of the parish and maintain the vision of its mission and ministry. They work as a team, sharing responsibility for the work of the church. Each year following elections in February, the Vestry gathers apart from the church in retreat. It is a time of assessing where we have been and planning where God would have us go.
