St. David’s parish is administered by a priest who is called the Rector. In the Episcopal Church, the governing body of each parish is the Vestry, composed of members elected by the congregation according to the terms of each parish’s by-laws. In addition, members include operational officers, such as the Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer. Elections are held each fall at the annual parish meeting, at which reports are heard from the Rector and the various Ministries of the church. While Vestry members have specific assignments within these Ministries, all of them are available to members of the congregation to hear suggestions or concerns. Our current Vestry is composed of twelve lay members, together with the Rector.

Becoming a Member

If you are already a member of an Episcopal church, you can contact the church office about requesting a transfer of that membership to St. David’s. If you are a member of another denomination or you have no current church affiliation, the Rector will be happy to talk with you about the steps which would be appropriate for you. Regardless of your membership, we hope you will find something of value to involve yourself here at St. David’s.
