Episcopal Churches are ecclesiastical in structure, with local congregations governed by an “Episcopal Church Council” of the diocese in their location. This Council is a non-profit corporation. Real property conveyances originated with a resolution of the local congregation authorizing the “Vestry” to take the proposed action. The Vestry then conducts a meeting and authorizes the Senior Warden and Junior Warden of the Vestry to execute the necessary documents. Both the Congregational and Vestry actions should be supported by authorizing resolutions. Mortgages of local church property should be joined by the diocese, by act of the President of the Board of Trustees.
