Christ Church Cathedral

What is a Vestry?

We are a Sanctuary Congregation.

The vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property. The number of vestry members and the term of office varies from parish to parish. Vestry members are usually elected at the annual parish meeting. 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 select the rector, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances.

The Vestry

Christ Church Cathedral’s current vestry membership is listed below. The vestry meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 4:30 p.m. in the vestry room. The meetings are open to all members. Members who wish to have an item submitted for the agenda need to submit the item to the dean’s office no later than the Wednesday prior to the meeting.
