The Patriarchal Chapter, known as the Pontifical Order of St. Stephen, is the seniormost part of the Pontifical Court.

The members of the Chapter are Capitular Bishops of St. Stephen, Deans ad Honorem, Prelates di Fiochetto, and Canons, who are prelates that may be in minor orders, deacons, or priests. The Chapter is headed by a Dean, who is the senior-most prelate within the Pontifical Court. Additionally, the chief assistant to H.H.E. the Archfather and administrative leader of the Patriarchal Curia, the First Archdeacon, and the Chancellor are both members of the Chapter.
