Staff / Vestry

The Staff of St. Mark's exists to facilitate the day to day ministry of the church and its members.

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.
