The Vestry is the Board of Directors of St. Mark's Episcopal Church. The name "Vestry" is taken from the room where clergy used to vest (don their liturgical garments) and where the church governing board used to meet.

It is both an honor and a privilege to serve at St. Mark's.  I believe music in church should be inspiring, fun, and inclusive.  I encourage you all to dust off your talents and bring them to church!  I intend to expand the styles of music we enjoy in church, as well as the voices from whom that music emanates.  It is said to sing once is to pray twice, and that includes instruments. So let's make all the joyful noise we can!

June and her husband Barry came to the Rogue Valley and to St. Mark's following retirement from healthcare (June) and General Contracting (Barry) in California. June has a BS in Human Development, and a Master's degree in Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management from So. Methodist University (Dallas, TX). June's career background is as a Director in Medical Staff Administration with several large hospital systems, including Scripps (San Diego), Baylor (Texas), and Dignity (L.A. and Santa Cruz).  Although the Episcopal liturgy is relatively new to them, June and Barry have embraced it and the lively and hard-working parish life that is St. Mark's. Together they have six grown children, twelve grandchildren, two dogs, a cat, and an adopted rescue horse.
