[[Image:Ocadowany.png|100px|left]]The '''''[[Diocese of Washington and New York|Diocese of Washington and New York (OCA)]]''''' is the reemergence with a new name of the original [[Diocese of New York and New Jersey (OCA)|Diocese of New York and New Jersey]] after it had been split to form the [[Diocese of Washington (OCA)|Diocese of Washington]] as a separate diocese.
At the 6th All-American Council, [[Holy Synod]] of Bishops decided to form a new Diocese of Washington, DC by splitting off the Washington area of the diocese. The new diocese in the nation's capital city began functioning in 1981 as the see of the [[Primate]] of the Orthodox Church in America. However, the national administrative offices remained at Syosset, within the Diocese of New York and New Jersey.
