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 reconstituted 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, who was exomunicated by Ecumenical Patriarch.

The Holy Synod divided Montenegro in five eparchies :

  • Eparchy of Cetinje
  • Eparchy of Duklja
  • Eparchy of Primorje
  • Eparchy of Ostrog
  • Eparchy of Berane
