The duties of the wardens are laid out in the canons of the Diocese, but it is not unusual to see the wardens involved in other areas in addition to these duties.  Also, wardens are often “connected” to specific areas within the parish as a way of the Corporation keeping in touch with the various groups in their day-to-day activities.  The wardens have each taken on specific areas in order to maintain continuity within the parishes day-to-day operations.  The chart below indicates the areas associated with the specific warden:
