Merriam Webster defines the word "vestry" as "an elective body in an Episcopal parish composed of the rector and a group of elected parishioners administering the temporal affairs of the parish". Christ Church Vestry members are elected in the Annual Meeting in January. Usually members are elected to a term of three years. Also in the annual meeting, the Junior Warden is elected for a term of one year by the parish. The Senior Warden is appointed by the rector. The Vestry votes for the secretary and treasurer during the first meeting of the year.

Top Three Goals & Priorities of Christ Church of the Ascension

  • Develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to reach new people and incorporate them into the life and ministries of our parish.
  • Make necessary changes to attract families with children and youth to our parish.
  • Further develop ministries that work toward healing those with broken by life circumstances in our community and beyond.

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month to discuss how we are accomplishing our mission to Know, Love, and Serve Christ through our management of outreach opportunities, upcoming events in the life of the church, the overall budget, and occasional large expenditures. These meetings are open for any member to attend.
