Welcome to the Vergers Guild of the Episcopal Church!

The Vergers Guild of the Episcopal Church (VGEC) is a service organization that supports the ministry of the verger. A verger is a member of the laity who works under the direction of their Rector, Vicar, or Priest-in-Charge to assist with the organization and operation of religious services in the Episcopal Church in the US, the Anglican Church of Canada, the Church of England, and world-wide throughout the Anglican Communion.

Through our education programs, online resources, and opportunities for fellowship, the VGEC supports over one thousand active members around the world. If you are interested in getting started with a new verger ministry in your parish, seeStarting a new Verger Ministry
