PARISH WELCOMES NEW PRIEST IN CHARGE
The people of St. David’s Episcopal Church, 91 Kinnelon Road, are proud to welcome The Rev. Jon M. Richardson as their new priest in charge.
A native of Louisiana, he was ordained in the Episcopal Diocese of Newark, and has served in parishes in Morris and Hudson counties in New Jersey , as well as in Philadelphia and New York. He is an active leader in advocacy and justice-seeking ministries in the Episcopal Church and around the world, particularly in the area of LGBTQ rights. He has also worked to bridge differences between Episcopalians in the U.S. and Anglicans in Africa. Rev. Richardson states he is “passionate about outreach and justice ministries in local parish ministries, and believes that we come to know God best by deeply engaging with and caring for one another.”
Rev. Richardson will begin his ministry in Kinnelon with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 9:30 am. All are welcome.
The vestry is the church’s “Board of Directors” and includes a Senior Warden, Junior Warden, Treasurer, and Clerk. The vestry consists of lay members of the church elected by the congregation at the annual parish meeting. The vestry currently has ten elected members. Vestry members normally serve a three year term and must be members in good standing of the parish.
The vestry duties are both practical and spiritual in nature. The vestry managerial duties include taking care of parish finances. They 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.

This commission is responsible for stewardship education. It oversees the spring commitment program where parishioners are invited to share their time and talents, and the fall commitment program, which concentrates on pledging or making a financial commitment to St. David’s for the year ahead. Stewardship Commission’s other main task is to plan and organize the various fundraising activities held throughout the year.
The Budget and Finance Committee makes recommendations to vestry concerning the planning, securing and managing of the financial resources of the church. It meets regularly throughout the year, keeping oversight of all matters of income and expenditure, culminating in the preparation of the yearly budget.
The Property Committee maintains, updates and manages the church grounds and property. The committee also takes a role in the submission of grant and loan applications and provides monthly updates to the Vestry along with recommendations when appropriate.
Worship services are conducted by Worship Teams and headed by a Worship Team Leader. Team leaders are responsible for scheduling the various ministries required for worship services, so that no one person is scheduled for multiple ministries on a given Sunday. Training and refresher sessions for various ministries are held periodically.
