It was granted Autonomous status on February 14/27, 2011 through Decree #542 of the Milan Synod. Communion with the Milan Synod ceased on [[April 4]], 2011, and the cessation of [[communion]] was confirmed by the American Metropolia the same day.

As with other Old Calendarist jurisdictions, the American Metropolia is not in communion with any of the mainstream Orthodox Churches. After the release of an official statement from Milan claiming fraternal relations with Moscow, the American Metropolia released a [[clergy]] confession reiterating its rejection of [[ecumenismEcumenism]], Sergianism, modernismModernism, and the [[New Calendar]]. Communion ceased between the Autonomous Orthodox American Metropolia of North and South America and of All the Isles and the [[Holy Milan Synod of Milan]] on April 4, 2011. The Sister Synod of America American Metropolia confirmed this cessation, attributing it to "the fact that the European Metropolia ('Milan Synod in Europe') broke communion with her sister churches, over her desire to unite with the World Orthodox Patriarchate of Moscow, which has been condemned by the European Metropolia's former Sister Synods in America, Greece, Bulgaria, and Russia (under criticized “Metropolitan of Moscow Raphael”, the former colonel of the KGB [[Леонид Семёнович Мотовилов]]- [[Russian True Orthodox Church (Raphaelites)]])."
