Easter General Vestries

Easter General Vestries

The Diocesan Councils of Dublin and Glendalough have instructed the parishes of the dioceses to hold Easter General Vestries meetings between 6th August and 6th September 2020.


The Easter General Vestry is the Annual General Meeting of the Parish.  At the meeting, there is a review of the previous year and a preview of the year ahead.  Any member of the parish can attend the Easter General Vestry, and may speak at the Easter General Vestry, but only those who have signed up to the Register of Vestrypersons can vote or hold office.  The Register is updated in January each year.

This year, we also have triennial elections which means that you have to elect Parochial Nominators (whose responsibility it is to find a new Rector should the present one ‘do a runner’!) and Diocesan Synodspersons (who represent the parishes at Diocesan Synod).

Please value your right to have a say, and your right to vote.  Do please support your parish by attending the Easter General Vestry.  There will be social distancing at each meeting and attendees are asked to wear a face covering.


Mount Merrion Easter General Vestry Meeting will be held on Monday 24th August 2020 at 20.00 hours in St Thomas’ Church Hall (the Monk Gibbon Hall).


Booterstown and Carysfort Easter General Vestry Meeting will be held on Sunday 30th August 2020 at 11.30 (after the Sunday Service) in St Philip and St James’ Church.
