The Vestry works together with the Rector to address the temporal concerns of the parish and to further the Church's mission. Its basic responsibilities are to help define and support our goals and priorities; to ensure effective organization and planning; and to manage our resources and finances. The Vestry consists of seven elected, voting members. Two of these serve as Vestry officers, known as the "Senior Warden" and "Junior Warden." In addition, two non-vestry members assist the Vestry in their work in the roles of "Treasurer" and "Clerk."
Vestry members serve for 3 year, staggered terms. Two or three new members are elected by the congregation each year at the Annual Parish Meeting. If you are interested in being nominated to serve, talk to any Vestry member.
Vestry meetings typically occur on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the parish workroom. Any members in good standing of Holy Comforter are welcome to attend. The minutes of all vestry meetings are available for all members to see, on request.
