What is the vestry?
In Episcopal churches, the Vestry is the elected governing body of the parish. In addition to the Rector, the Vestry is composed of the Senior and Junior Wardens and 12 other members who represent a broad spectrum of the St. Peter's community. According to our church canons, the Vestry has responsibility for the "temporal affairs of the parish," including the stewardship of church money and property, personnel, and program development and oversight.
