The Vestry is the governing board of an Episcopal parish consisting of the Rector, the Senior Warden, and lay members including the Junior Warden. The Rector presides at meetings of the vestry (or, in his absence, the Wardens), which handle the parish's business and temporal matters and serves as a council of advice for the Rector. Lay members of the Vestry are elected at a Parish Annual Meeting.

St. Andrew's Vestry meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month, except during the summer months during which the Vestry meets on an as needed basis. Vestry meetings are open, and members of the parish are invited to attend and listen in on the discussions and work the vestry does each month.
