The Chapter is the governing body of the Cathedral that determines policy issues, sets goals and provides stewardship of the Cathedral's complex operations. The Chapter reviews the activities of each of the Cathedral's parochial entities and ministries on an annual basis, and reviews the church's financials on a monthly basis. Unlike the vestries of smaller parishes, the Chapter does not usually get involved in the day-to-day activities of the Cathedral; instead, the Chapter of the Cathedral functions similarly to a "Board of Trustees.”
Each year, a Nominating Committee identifies a slate of six candidates for a three-year term on the Chapter, to be voted on by the parish at the annual Parish Meeting in December.
