The Vestry of St. Catherine’s is composed of 12 adult members. These individuals represent the parish-at-large and are an important voice in the decisions of the parish. Candidates are elected for a 3 year term at each annual meeting. The Vestry collaborates with the Rector in the spiritual and secular responsibilities of the parish, and is responsible for the finances of the parish. Vestry members oversee areas of ministry such as commissions, committees, and work groups. If you wish to contact a Vestry member, please send an e-mail to the church with the Vestry member’s name in the subject line. The e-mail will be forwarded to the proper person.
