Vestry

St. Martin-in-the-Fields is strengthened by lay and clergy leaders working together to serve our community. 

Meet Our People

VESTRY

St. Martin’s is led by a group of elected representatives called the vestry. The vestry has 12 members, in three classes elected for three-year terms on a rotating basis. The basic responsibilities of the vestry are to work with the rector to define and articulate the mission of the congregation, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances. Elections are held annually at the parish meeting in January.
