The Wardens and Vestry of St. Mark’s Church
The wardens and vestry members form the lay leadership of the church. The four officers, the Co-Wardens, Clerk and Treasurer are elected at each annual meeting of the parish. The nine vestry members are elected for three year terms on a rotating cycle. The former Senior Warden is also on the vestry.
The vestry and wardens meet each month with the rector to manage the business of the parish, plan and approve budgets, develop programs, hire personnel, and review any other issues before the parish. When needed, the vestry is also tasked with filling a vacancy by calling a new rector at the recommendation of the Discernment committee and approval by the Bishop.
The annual meeting gathers all members of the parish for elections, discussion of the budget as passed by the vestry and conversation about the priorities of the congregation for the coming year.
The 2018 Vestry:
Vestry members are Cate Ashton, Jimmy Pickett, Bruce McGray, Dawn Cates, Cipperly Good, Don Ashton, Bev Day, Linda Kingdon and Mary Ellen Johnston. Tim McFadden serves as the former Senior Warden.
The Finance Committee provides detailed oversight of parish funds and drafts the parish budget every year. For more information contact the chair, Rick MacKenzie.
