The vestry of an Episcopal Church has three primary responsibilities. The first two are managerial: to take care of the parish finances and parish buildings. The third responsibility (though all or part of it may be assigned to the parish meeting in some diocese) is to choose individuals to fill various positions of parish leadership and representation: the election of a rector, the choice of delegates to the diocesan canons and parish bylaws may stipulate. All these responsibilities are defined by the laws of the church that are called “canons”. (excerpt from ‘The Vestry Handbook; revised edition’ by Christopher L. Webber, 2000)
