Staff and vestry


The Vestry is our governing body. Vestry members are elected at the annual meeting. The Vestry is responsible for finances, building, and grounds of the Parish. Members are part of committees and manage the ministries of Christ Church.

Committees report to the vestry following the 10 a.m. Eucharist during the monthly meeting held on the second Sunday of each month.
