Our Lay Leaders

The Vestry is the elected lay leadership council of the Church. The Vestry of St. Stephen’s meets monthly to discuss, reflect, and take action on the many important aspects of church life. The Vestry is made up of 12 members of the church, officers, and the Rector. Every year at our annual meeting, we elect a class of 4 new Vestry members, who serves a three-year term.

Diocesan delegates represent St. Stephen’s at The Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, and report back to the parish on actions taken.
