Many parts of Episcopal worship look Roman Catholic; however, our governance has a more Protestant sensibility. While the rector, or senior priest, is in charge of worship decisions and is the head of staff, the vestry, or board of directors, is responsible for the financial health of the parish as well as the maintenance of its physical plant. Vestry members serve three-year terms with one-third of the board changing each year. The president and vice president of the parish are called the senior warden and junior warden, respectively. Wardens are elected for one-year terms with the option of running for three consecutive terms. They, along with the rector, serve as the executive committee of the parish for the daily needs of the congregation. Vestry members are elected at a parish-wide meeting held each January, at which the parish receives the new budget for the year, considers bylaw changes, and chooses members for the diocesan convention.
