Meet Us!

As well as paid clergy and staff, St. Francis could not operate without its many generous and enthusiastic lay leaders:

Vestry – 12 elected members, serving 3 year terms to steward the mission, vision and values of our parish, and its resources (buildings, grounds, finances, long range plans, and personnel).

Ministry Council – “Shepherds” coordinate the program ministries of our parish – helping our parish grow together as one community with a shared mission.
