The Vestry conducts the business of St. Peter’s in tandem with the rector. At our monthly meetings we discuss our finances, what’s happening through our various commissions and programs, upcoming events, and any current concerns of the parish. These meetings are open to all members of the church.

Vestry members are elected at the annual parish meeting each January. The presiding officer of the Vestry is the Rector. The Senior Warden leads the parish between rectors and is a support person for the rector. The Junior Warden supports the Senior Warden and is available in the Senior Warden’s absence. Filling out the officer positions are the Treasurer and Clerk. There are four additional Vestry members. The qualifications and terms are set through our bylaws.

Our Vestry members represent a cross-section of the membership, newer members, and others who have served previously and chose to rejoin recently. We have worked on various commissions and activities, and bring that experience to the table in our discussions. We are a spirited and spirit-filled group that works together to keep St. Peter’s vibrant, mission-focused, and financially stable.

In addition to the Vestry, delegates from the parish are elected to represent our community at the annual convention of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut. Two delegates and two alternates are elected for three-year terms.

Lay leaders are elected annually at the parish annual meeting, held in the month of January. Congratulations to our members newly elected to serve in the coming year!
