What's New in the Vergers Document Library?

The Document Library of The Vergers Guild of the Episcopal Church has almost 60 documents for your use at vergers.org/resources/library.

This excellent reference library includes sections such as:
  • Verger Ministries
  • Checklists
  • Customaries
  • Glossary
  • Lay Eucharistic Ministries
  • Liturgies
  • Miscellaneous
  • Verger Guild Documents.
Vergers representing 17 churches in 11 states have contributed to the library.  We would love to add your documents.  Feel free to send anything you want to share to [email protected] for possible inclusion.

If you are tasked with a "new" service for your parish,  look in the Customaries or Liturgies sections. Chances are you will find a customary you can tailor to your parish needs.

You may freely copy any of the materials contained in the Library for your own use. Kindly give credit to the VGEC and the source parish, and provide a link to vergers.org/resources/library in any document used from this library. 

You will find everything from a "Fact and Fantasy" article by John H. Betts and an article from the U.S. Copyright Office containing all you want to know about copyrights for your parish, to an excellent Master's Thesis titled "Walk Softly and Carry a Big Stick–with Love: The Emerging Ministry of the Verger in the Late 20th Century to the Present" by David S. Deutsch.
