Our Church Leadership (The Vestry and Staff)
Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who are a part of our leadership. Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:

She has been on the Vestry, the Finance Committee, Building and Grounds Committee, taught Sunday School, serve on the Altar Guild, and had her garden featured on our Backyards & Beauty Spots Garden Tour.
Diane has been an active parishioner for many years and has led the ECW as President for the past several years. Her contributions to the life of the parish are too numerous to list. She and her husband Jim live here in York.
