After his return to the United States in the 1980s, Fr. Anthony was forced to resign his position as church secretary due to rumors associated with a financial scandal. After a disagreement with the ROCOR hierarchy and failed attempts to regain links with the [[Church of Serbia|Serbian Orthodox Church]], Fr. Anthony joined a [[Old Calendarists]] jurisdiction in 1985. In 1996, he was [[consecration of a bishop|consecrated]] a bishop in New York. However, he was scarcely active as a bishop and soon retired.
In 2001, he joined the non-canonical [[Russian Orthodox Autonomous Church]], that was led from the city of Suzdal in Russia by Bishop [[Valentine (Rusantsov)]]. This group had broken away from ROCOR in mid 1990s. The Valentine group recognized the validity of Anthony's consecration as bishop and at his death he was its oldest bishop.
Bp. Anthony died in New York on [[September 12]], 2005. He was buried at Novo-Diveeyevo Diveyevo Convent in Spring Valley, New York.
