The vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property. The basic responsibilities of the vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation; to support the church’s mission by word and deed, to select the rector, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances.

The current vestry members of St. Augustine’s are:

  • John Adam
  • Priscilla Adenuga
  • Madeline Bohr
  • Helen Centner
  • Stefan Ehmann
  • Bettina Gies
  • Peter Hellbach
  • Joe Kroll
  • Barbara Mueller-Grant
  • Greg Rampinelli
  • John Warner


And these are the officers of the vestry:

Senior Warden: Peter Hellbach
Junior Warden: Joe Kroll
Treasurer: Tim Hawken (ex officio)
Secretary: Priscilla Adenuga

This Vestry Compact was adopted by the Parish Leadership in 2014 and is renewed every year.
