Holy Cross Bishop’s Committee
As a mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania, rather than a parish (a congregation wealthy enough to support a full-time priest), Holy Cross is under the direct control of our bishop. Our priest is his vicar, or representative, and our governing body is called a bishop’s committee (rather than the more familiar vestry).
Members are appointed by the bishop, after being elected by the congregation, and are responsible to him as well as to the congregation. The chief lay officer is called the Bishop’s Warden; we also have two Property Wardens, a Secretary and Treasurer, and two Hospitality Wardens. Members also assume other responsibilities for areas of parish ministry.
