Easter General Vestry

1 May 2019 at 7.45 pm in Magheralin

Around Easter time every year, in compliance with the Constitution of the Church of Ireland, a General Vestry meeting is held in parishes throughout the Church of Ireland. The General Vestry meeting in our parish will be held on Wednesday 1 May 2019 at 7.45pm. The venue this year will be the main hall in Magheralin.

The Easter General Vestry is not a business meeting; however it is very important. It is chaired by the Rector and reports are given by him and the treasurer. In his report the Treasurer presents and explains the annual accounts.

After the reports the Rector announces his Church and Glebe Wardens and thereafter elections follow to appoint Peoples Church and Glebe Wardens and Select Vestry all of whom will stay in office until the next election which will be around Easter time next year.  Every third year elections also take place for other appointments                

All parishioners are encouraged to attend the Easter Vestry but only those on the General Vestry Register can vote.
