St. Martin’s Vestry

St. Martin’s Vestry is the lay governing body of the Parish, which operates under the guidance of the Rector. It is comprised of 15 elected Vestry members, as well as a variety of associate members. Those who serve on the Vestry are diligent and strong supporters of St. Martin’s future. Each Vestry member devotes a great deal of time to overseeing our financial, property and missions operations. Members are elected to a three-year term, and five of the 15 elected members rotate off the Vestry each January at our Annual Parish Meeting, as we vote on five new members. Thank you, St. Martin’s Vestry, for all the hard work you have done and continue to do for our Parish.

Vestry Nominations
Current members of St. Martin’s may nominate any confirmed member of the Parish for consideration to serve on the Vestry for the upcoming three-year term. Nominations can be submitted for review from August to October of each year. At our Annual Parish Meeting we will vote as a Parish to elect five new members to serve for a three-year term on the Vestry.

The Annual Parish Meeting is held each year on a Sunday in January. Please consult the Church calendar for the date of the upcoming meeting.
