About Grace & Holy Trinity Church

Church Vestry

The Vestry is a 15-member body elected by the parish at its annual meeting. The Vestry meets once a month and each Vestry member is responsible for working with one of the new goals of our Strategic Plan. There are also committees, such as the Finance Committee convened by Mike Joyce, which assist the work of the Vestry. Bill Shumadine serves as Treasurer.

Vestry members are elected for three-year terms. Together with the clergy, staff and all the members of the parish, the Vestry is responsible for leading the church into faithful discipleship in the service of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Read more about Vestry duties and expectations.
