Our Church thrives because of the energy, skills and dedication of the people who are a part of our leadership. In the Episcopal Church, the Vestry are parish leaders responsible for  management of parish property and resources and selecting a rector or priest. The rector is the presiding officer of the vestry. Vestry members are elected at the congregation's annual meeting.
