St. Alban’s Vestry

In a long-standing tradition, each parish in the Episcopal Church elects lay members to serve with the Rector on a Vestry, the governing and decision-making body for the church. The Vestry’s duties include calling the Rector, approving the budget and making policy. The Vestry is led by the Senior and Junior Warden, and works closely with the Rector in faithfully guiding the parish forward. Authority within the church is divided between the Bishop of Maine, the Rector and the Vestry working together in a collaborative way.

At St. Alban’s, eleven vestry members serve and are elected at an annual meeting in January to serve three year terms. At St. Alban’s the Vestry meetings are scheduled the second Tuesday of each month and open to the whole congregation.

St. Alban’s has been a wonderfully welcoming place for my family.  There is always a smile, a laugh or a tear to share with people who, at their core, are incredibly supportive and loving.

St. Alban’s is not only a rich spiritual home, but also key to building connectedness to our communities near and far.
