Grace Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church in Bath, Maine, established in 1849


The “board” of an Episcopal Parish is called the Vestry. The Vestry works collaboratively with the clergy in leading the parish in all important matters. There are eight general members of Grace’s Vestry, plus four officers. All are elected at the Annual Parish Meeting, which takes place in January. General members are elected to three year terms, officers to one year renewable terms.

The two Wardens are the Vestry’s chief officers.  A Treasurer, supported by a Finance Committee and by a paid bookkeeper, is in charge of parish finances. A Clerk keeps minutes of Vestry meetings and other important records.

Vestry meetings are generally the third Tuesday of the month at 6 PM  and are open to the parish. Minutes are posted on the bulletin board outside the office and on this page as soon as they are approved, usually at the next meeting.
