The vestry of an Episcopal church has three primary responsibilities.

The first two are managerial: to take care of parish finances and the parish buildings. The third is to choose individuals to fill various positions of leadership and representation: the choice of a rector, the choice of delegates to the diocesan convention, and the selection of others as the diocesan canons may stipulate. The vestry also serves as an advisory council to the rector who by church law is the parish’s chief liturgical and pastoral officer.

The vestry consists of lay members of the church elected by the congregation at the annual parish meeting which happens in July. The vestry of St. Brendan's church currently has eight elected members. Each year, the congregation elects the Senior and Junior Wardens, Secretary and Treasurer, and other members of the vestry. Vestry members normally serve a three year term and must be members in good standing of the parish.

The vestry meets each month to review and approve normal monthly operational expenses of the church, receive reports from various committees, plan and approve capital improvement projects, and attend to concerns within the parish.
