Vestry and Officers

St. Luke's temporal affairs of the parish are directed by its vestry. The vestry consists of twelve laypeople elected to serve a three-year term. Each member is charged with overseeing an important aspect of the church's business through various committees. These committees include but are not limited to: Property, Finance, Stewardship, Hospitality, Communications, Altar Guild, Vacation Bible School, and ECW. Along with committee duties, the Vestry is an important liaison between the parish and the diocese when searching/hiring a new parish rector.

In order to serve on the vestry, members must have been confirmed in the Episcopalian church, are in good standing, and are active members. The vestry meets once a month to discuss and vote on important church business.
