The Vestry at St. James is made up of 12 members in good standing of the parish with four new members selected each year. A term on the Vestry is three years. The candidates for Vestry are nominated by committee made up of the outgoing class, and the new members are selected by lots at the Annual Meeting. This follows the scripture were the Apostles replaced Judas by casting lots.
The Senior Warden is named by the Rector. The Junior Warden and the Clerk of the Vestry are selected by the Vestry. The Treasurer may be selected from the Vestry or from the Parish (and does not have to be on the Vestry).
