The Chapter is the governing body of St. Paul's Cathedral and is responsible for the governance and care of the Cathedral's building and grounds and finances. Meetings are held monthly and are generally open to all Cathedral members except for occasions when the Chapter must meet in executive session.
The Chapter consists of 12 members of the Cathedral (who are elected at the Annual Meeting to serve terms of three years) and the Dean, who is elected annually and serves as Chair. In addition to those elected by the Cathedral congregation, an additional member is appointed by the Bishop of San Diego and two more members are elected by the Diocese of San Diego at the Diocesan Convention.
From the members of the Chapter, the Dean appoints a Dean's Warden and the Chapter elects a People's Warden.
