The vestry is the governing board of church members who are canonically responsible for managing the church’s resources and finances. At St. Martin’s, vestry members are also seen as spiritual leaders of the congregation, working alongside the rector and professional staff to help shape and support St. Martin’s mission. The vestry is led by two “wardens:” the Senior Warden, who leads the parish in the absence of or between rectors, and the Junior Warden, who has primary responsibility for church buildings and property. The Vestry meets monthly to review the financial health of the parish, to discuss improvements, and to prayerfully consider the needs, and goals for the parish and community.
