== Renaming ==Contrary to the article, this diocese is no longer called the "Russian Orthodox Diocese of Alaska". After the departure of Bishop Nikolai, who had changed the name of the diocese to that, the Diocese was at some point renamed back to simply the "Diocese of Alaska" which is what it was before Bishop Nikolai. Its title is not "Dioese of Alaska (OCA)". The current bishop titles himself "Bishop of Sitka and Alaska".[[User:Palmleaf|Palmleaf]] ([[User talk:Palmleaf|talk]]) 02:57, October 12, 2017 (UTC): The diocese’s “official” name seems to be even longer: '''Diocese of Sitka, Anchorage and Alaska'''.[https://www.doaoca.org/parishes?type=details&id=44][https://www.oca.org/files/PDF/DOC-PUB/NS/winter2004.pdf][https://www.oca.org/news/archived/alaskan-diocesan-assembly-passes-resolution-on-the-environment] Although, Drevo Encyclopedia notes that “Anchorage” has not been used since 2014, which can be verified with a simple web search.[https://drevo-info.ru/articles/10661.html][https://www.google.com/search?tbs=cdr:1,cd_min:1/1/2014&q=%22of+sitka,+anchorage%22] Given no objection has been made to the renaming since 2017 and the main article hasn’t received any new edit since 2016, I’ll move the article to '''Diocese of Sitka'''.
