St. Anne’s Vestry
The canons of the church give exclusive authority to the Vestry for the fiscal affairs of the Parish. The Vestry consists of twelve lay members of the parish who are elected at an annual meeting, held in January.
Four members are elected each year to serve a three year term. Although Vestry members are responsible for tending to all areas of the church, each Vestry member has an area of focus within St. Anne’s. The Vestry representative acts as a facilitator and liaison for committees by sharing information, communicating back to the Vestry and assisting committee heads as needed.
Vestry members also handle specific duties each Sunday and certain major celebrations.
