After In 1988, after denouncing the heresy involved with the religious movement, many of its members and hierarchy have joined a non-canonical group of the Orthodox Church under the name '''Christ the Saviour Brotherhood''' (or CSB). In 2000, members of CSB joined canonical jurisdictions of the Orthodox Church. '''[ Raphael House]''', a property previously belonging to HOOM was originally an integrated charitable activity of CSB, but was incorporated as its own California [ nonprofit organization] in 1991. [ It is under] the [[OCA]] jurisdiction.
A thorough Orthodox explanation of the [ journey of the Holy Order of MANS and Christ the Saviour Brotherhood] can be read in [ Again], Vol. 23, No. 1, January-March 2001, pp. 23-26
Several [ religious cults] still exist today because of the influence of HOOM. In fact, in some ways, [ HOOM still exists] to this day.
