The Vestry is a group of laypeople elected by the parish who, along with the Rector, supervise and sustain the finances, facilities and grounds of the Cathedral. The Vestry also includes a representative of the Bishop, and “Diocesan members” who are members of other parishes in the Diocese of Olympia. Members are elected to 3-year terms.
