Leadership at All Souls

Leadership at All Souls takes many forms. Of our staff, one is full time and the others are part time to varying degrees. The majority of our ministry is led and staffed by volunteerssome elected to Vestry (the board that leads the parish) and many others who serve with committees, task forces, and informal groups that make up the life and witness of All Souls.
