At St. Paul’s Anglican Church, our Rector is the spiritual head of the congregation. She is responsible for the spiritual well being of all the members of the congregation/parish. She shares responsibility with the bishop for the ministry of the Anglican Church in the parish. She oversee the Christian education and formation in the parish.

The Rector together with 3 church wardens forms the leadership team of the parish. The leadership team are responsible for maintaining the parish property and its furnishing, arranging Eucharists and other parish programs, and raising revenues to fund these activities.

The 3 church wardens consist of a rector’s warden and 2 associate wardens. The Rector’s Warden is appointed by the rector while the Associate Wardens are the elected lay-guardians of the parish. Wardens hold the highest non-ordained authority in the congregation.

The Vestry which consist of all baptized parishioners over fifteen years of age, meets each year to review the activities of the previous year and to set policies and budgets for the current year. It elects the 2 associate wardens and a representative to the church committee.

At St. Paul’s we also have an assistant priest who assists the Rector in exercising her pastoral and liturgical responsibilities.

Other persons (either volunteer or salaried) assist the leadership team in managing different parish ministries and activities. Currently, our salaried staff are the Advocacy Office Director, Music Director, Office/Parish Administrator, Property Manager and Relief Custodian.
