Vestry minutes - February, 2020

Minutes of February 22, 2020 Vestry Meeting

Present: Charlie de Kay, Cynthia Doucet, Kristin Jacobsen, Penelope Boardman, Susan Cherco, Connie Conley, Bob Purse, Dave Turner, Melissa Warden, Allison Zidek,), Jennie Woodring (clerk)

Absent: Monique Austin, Steve Steiber


The vestry held a winter vestry retreat from 9:00-3:00 at St. Matthew’s, in order to allow vestry members to get to know each other and for new vestry members to become acquainted with ongoing vestry issues.


A brief business meeting was held:

APPROVED – the vestry approved the Parochial Report to the diocese.

Notable was the change in number of reported members of St. Matthew’s, from 527 to 368. This does NOT reflect a sharp decrease in membership, but rather a more accurate assessment, with the purging and cleanup of the membership database. A note to that effect will be included in the report.


APPROVED – the vestry approved the rector’s annual housing allowance, which is included in his compensation. This approval allows the rector’s taxes to be properly filed.

Charlie asked for help in thinking about how to best distribute funds from his discretionary account. He is approached (sometimes regularly) by individuals asking for assistance with, for example, paying bills. This will appear on the next vestry agenda.


Action Items:

Susan Cherco – get list of local resources for people who approach Charlie for assistance

Cynthia and others who volunteered – do additional research regarding distribution of the rector’s discretionary fund.
