Lay Leadership: The Vestry

In the truest aspect of life in an Episcopal Church, lay leaders play an integral part in the life of the parish. Opportunities for the ministry of leadership abound and include service on a variety of ongoing and ad hoc committees.


In Episcopal parishes, in addition to the Rector, the Vestry is the elected governing body of the parish. Nominees for vestry and wardens are presented to the parish at the annual meeting (in February) for election to three-year terms.

Investment Committee

The Investment Committee meets quarterly and assumes the fiduciary responsibility for All Saints.

Budget and Finance Committee

The Budget and Finance Committee considers, analyzes, and investigates all matters concerning revenue, expense, financial control and accounting, and auditing in connection with the Church’s and Parish School’s affairs. The Committee also reviews proposed activities involving significant expenditures or uses of Church assets and makes recommendations to the Vestry.
