The Orthodox Ohrid Archidiocese (Macedonian: Православна Охридска Архиепископија) is an autonomous Orthodox church whose primate is confirmed by the Church of Serbia. It was established in 2003 when Metropolitan of Veles and Povardarje Jovan from the canonically unrecognized Macedonian Orthodox Church accepted the Niš agreement. On May 24, 2005, during the Feast of Ss. Cyril and Methodius the Holy Assembly of Bishops of Serbian Orthodox Church granted autonomy to the Ohrid Archidiocese. The Archdiocese of Ohrid is in full communion with other Orthodox Churches but its autonomy is currently not recognized in international Orthodox gatherings.


The current Archbishop of Ohrid and Metropolitan of Skopje is Jovan (Vraniškovski).
