Assisting Clergy and Ministers
The Chapter is responsible for the governance of the corporate and temporal affairs of the Cathedral. Members are elected during the Annual Meeting, which is ordinarily held on the last Sunday of January. Each year three members retire from The Chapter and three new members are elected to serve a four-year term. Together with the Dean and staff of the Cathedral, the Chapter establishes the vision, fosters the spirit of stewardship, and secures the funds to maintain the Cathedral’s ministries.
