The vestry is the governing board of an Episcopal parish and consists of the rector, the wardens, the treasurer, the clerk and lay members. Wardens, treasurer, clerk and lay members are nominated and elected by the congregation at its annual meeting, generally held at Good Shepherd on the last Sunday in January. Our vestry meets once a month and all members of the congregation are welcome. The meetings are the second Tuesday of the month at 7 PM in the church lounge and are open to all members of the parish. The Senior Warden serves as a liaison between the rector and the parish. While the tasks of the Junior Warden vary from parish to parish, the majority of Junior Wardens, including Good Shepherd's are placed in charge of the Buildings and Grounds Committee.
