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
  • Madeline Bohr
  • Meredith Bruno
  • Mike Dombrowski
  • Helen Centner
  • Bettina Gies
  • Lawrence Kamau
  • Joe Kroll
  • Barbara Mueller-Grant
  • Nina Scheicher
  • Anastasiia Synytsia
  • John Warner

And these are the officers of the vestry:

Senior Warden: Helen Centner
Junior Warden: Joe Kroll
Treasurer: Tim Hawken (ex officio)
Secretary: John Warner

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