Within every congregation in the Diocese, there is a Parish Council consisting of the Rector, Churchwardens, Deputy Churchwardens (if any), Lay Delegates to Synod, Alternate Lay Delegates and not fewer than four nor more than twelve members of the Vestry of the congregation, with the number to be determined by the Vestry. One-half of such number is elected by the Vestry and one-half is appointed by the Rector, in each case from amongst members of the Vestry.
It is the responsibility of the Parish Council to assist the Rector and the Wardens to conduct parish affairs so that the parish will be able to effectively carry out its mission as a Christian community. Each month, excluding July, our Parish Council meets to discuss the care and maintenance of the church and its contents, congregational life, the financial affairs of the church and explore new opportunities to fulfill our mission. By doing this, the Parish Council enables the Rector and the laity to work together to spread the Gospel and minister to each other and the community.
