What is a Vestry?
Our function is administrative, involving finance, management, and policy decisions. But our deeper role is to further the mission of St. Luke's and Christ's church in the world, as a unifying force for good. We offer our service as stewards and caretakers within this spiritual framework.
There are nine Vestry members, and we serve staggered 3-year terms. That means each year, a new set of 3 people replaces a set whose term is up. Hence there is always a balance between change and continuity. In addition, the Vestry "team" includes the vital offices of Clerk and Treasurer.
In the narthex, as you enter the sanctuary, you'll see a bulletin board with photos of the Vestry. Please introduce yourself to us!
If you have questions about St. Luke's, or would like to learn more about the Vestry, please let us know. Our names are below, and you can email us c/o the church office.
Carmen Schell - Junior Warden
Loretta Russell Hoffmann
Gayle Hemenway - Senior Warden

* Terms finish at the annual meeting in January.
