The ministry of the Vestry at St. Michael’s includes strategic governance and fiduciary responsibility. The expectation is that the Rector with the Vestry leadership will lead the parish to be a relevant, welcoming and Christ centered place. Many members are involved in other areas of interest, but the focus of this ministry is to lead the leaders of the church. Each vestry member identifies a ministry in which they will participate as a liaison between the committee work and the strategic goals.
The goal is to help our ministries stay focused and help the work being done get communicated better throughout the congregation. It is the role of the Vestry to keep the church fiscally responsible. We meet regularly to discuss and identify areas of concern as well as areas to celebrate! We want to help all members grow and spread the gospel to those who have not yet experienced it.
Every year, we elect our new vestry members at our annual meeting, which is being held January 22, 2023 immediately following the 10am service. This year, we have openings for 4 new vestry members to carry out three-year terms, and one new vestry member to fulfill Lis Padula’s term. We want to thank Lis for her service in this capacity. You were a valued member of our team and we appreciate your work on the vestry.
If you are interested in this work, please fill out a nomination form and return it to the office by December 31st.
