St. Mark's has been blessed over many years with an able and talented vestry. Our vestry of 11 members is led by an executive committee including our Senior Warden, Junior Warden, and Treasurer. We invite you to contact our wardens to answer questions about our Parish life. They may be reached at the email addresses included below, or you can contact our church secretary at


Scott Hilton, Senior Warden

"My role is to serve St. Mark's and support our passionate and compassionate staff and parishioners to make our faith family a loving place of sanctuary and to shine God's light onto the broken world. Judie and I, along with our two kids, have been part of the St. Mark's community since 1998." Email Me

Tom Ellis, Junior Warden

Tom's role is to serve the St. Mark's community as the Junior Warden and take care of the physical property and buildings of the church. He said "This is my second time serving on the Vestry over the 28 years that my wife, Jean, and I have been members of St. Marks Church. "We have had a wonderful experience meeting so many caring parish members over those years as we raised our family in Westford.  The relationships we have established through St. Mark’s have enriched our lives in so many ways."

Judie Hilton, Pre-school representative

"My family joined  St. Mark’s in 1997, shortly after we moved from the DC area.  Since joining I have enjoyed participating in the church community in many ways. Currently, I served as the Family Ministries Leader, and on the Vestry as the liaison for Westford Preschool at St. Mark’s.  When I am not preparing a Sunday School lesson, or making a pot of soup to be served at the monthly Dinner Church, I enjoy adventures with my husband, Scott, and our two adult children, trying new recipes and crafting."

"I started attending StMark’s because I wanted my children to learn about God and belong to a friendly, loving church. Now that my children are grown I volunteer on the StMark’s Vestry Board because I enjoy the company of the wonderful people of StMark's and the charitable work they do."

"I have been coming to St Mark's since I was a child when my parents chose to make St. Mark's our church home.  I was married here and my husband and I raised our five children with the help our extended St Mark's family. The people of this parish are what keeps me coming and engaged in our church life together; knowing everyone is here to support each other's faith journey and to help each other in good times as well as the bad."

Paul Ackroyd, 1-Year Delegate to Diocesan Convention

"StMark’s has been my spiritual home since the early 1980s, and it was an important part of our three children's spiritual formation. One of the things that I love about StMark’s is our commitment to service in the broader community. For a small church, we do a lot charitably as well as working for social justice."
