Montenegrin Orthodox Church

Revision as of 18:30, March 31, 2007 by Akarige (talk | contribs) (Organization)

The Montenegrin Orthodox Church (in Montenegrin / Serbian: Crnogorska Pravoslavna Crkva) is a jurisdiction in Montenegro which declares itself to be autocephalous. It separated from the Church of Serbia. Its self-proclaimed autocephaly is not officially recognized by other Orthodox churches.



On January 11, 2007, MOC reconsituted its Holy Synod and proclaimed its first decree in which it reconfirms its autocephalous status. The Holy Synod is constituted by archpriests of MOC, led by Metropolitan Mihailo.

The Holy Synod divided Montenegro in five eparchies :

  • Eparphy of Cetinjska
  • Eparphy of Dukljanska
  • Eparphy of Primorska
  • Eparphy of Ostroška
  • Eparphy of Beranska
