Vestry Nomination Form 2014

Nominees for Vestry Sought -- Are You Called To Lead?

Nominations are now open for membership on the 2017 Vestry.  Nominees should be pledging members of Trinity Cathedral Church who are committed to serving the congregation in a leadership capacity.  Here is a brief overview about the roles and responsibilities of Vestry members.


The Vestry of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is a working board and Vestry members commit to active participation. Vestry members are elected by the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral (Cathedral) parishioners at the Annual Meeting, and, together with the Dean of the Cathedral, are entrusted with responsibility to discern the mission of the Cathedral today and in the future, and to set goals and priorities to support that mission. The Vestry is responsible for the Cathedral having the necessary funds, and necessary and appropriate assets, to accomplish this mission. The Vestry is entrusted with responsibility to ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place so that the people on the Cathedral campus, and Cathedral property, are protected against harm. The Vestry is entrusted with responsibility to measure the degree to which the Cathedral's mission is achieved.
The Vestry establishes policies to ensure ministry is carried out in accordance with the Cathedral's values, mission, goals, and priorities. The Vestry delegates authority for the day-to-day management of the Cathedral to the Dean and to Cathedral administrative and ministry leaders.
