The Vestry are the lay leaders in charge of ensuring the proper care and maintenance of the finances and facilities. In our Church we often make a distinction between the "spiritualities" and the "temporalities". The spiritualities are things such as spiritual care, worship, etc. and other aspects of spiritual life. Those are under the charge of the priest. The priest is also in charge of how the facilities are used. Other things are the temporalities which include the budget, endowments, checking accounts, and facility maintenance. Sometimes the Vestry also takes on other leadership roles as needed. Vestry are elected on three year cycles at each Annual Meeting.
