Our Vestry

At St. Francis, our Vestry is comprised of 12 members, four of whom are elected each year for 3-year terms. Thus, the membership is constantly rotating, ensuring that all those called to leadership in the parish serve and that our vision is always as clear as possible. The Rector chairs Vestry meetings, but the Vestry is led by the Senior Warden. They are both assisted by the various officers of the Vestry. The Junior Warden watches property concerns, and the Secretary ensures good record keeping. The Treasurer, who is also elected by the parish, is not necessarily an elected member of the Vestry, but attends Vestry meetings and reports on current finances.
