The Vestry

Holy Comforter’s Vestry consists of 12 persons, each elected by the congregation to serve no more than a three-year term. The terms of each group of four are staggered so that four are elected annually and four are retired. The Vestry carries out its canonical duties through an organization of the officers (senior warden and junior warden), register, secretary, treasurer, assistant treasurer, committee chairs, and members at large, with the Rector as the chair. In making a commitment to serve, each Vestry member gives their time and talents to fulfilling this role.

Vestry Vestry Person of the Month (VPOM)

Each month one Vestry member is the Vestry Person of the Month (VPOM). The role of the VPOM is to serve as the point person for our combined interaction within the Holy Comforter community and the Vestry’s canonical role and responsibility in promoting the spiritual well-being of our parish.

For the month of June 2024, the VPOM is Art Kron.

Art and his wife Kristi have been members of Holy Comforter since 2009. They have two children: Wes, an engineering student at Purdue University; and Katie, an Oakton High School graduating senior, who will attend college this fall. On the Vestry, Art is the chair of the finance committee.

If you have any comments, questions, or are in need of pastoral care, please do not hesitate to reach out this month’s VPOM, Art Kron.
