In the Episcopal Church, the vestry is a committee elected by the congregation to work with the Rector in managing the temporal affairs of the church. The term 'vestry' originally came from a room in the church where sacred vessels and vestments were kept or meetings were held. The basic responsibilities of the vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation, to support the church's mission by word and deed, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances. Our vestry is committed to ensuring that we are good stewards of all that we have from God: our time, our talents, and our treasure. Thank you, Grace’s Vestry, for all the hard work you have done and continue to do for our Grace Church and the wider community.
