The Right Reverend Bishop '''Stephen (Dzubay) of Pittsburgh''' (né '''Alexander Dzubay''') was a [[bishop]] of the [[OCA|Russian American Metropolia]], received from the [[Unia]] in 1916.  He had served as a Uniat [[priest]] in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, prior to his reception into Orthodoxy, and had been a schoolmate of St. [[Alexis Toth]] in their native land.
After his reception by the Russian hierarch in America, Fr. Alexander was [[tonsure]]d as a [[monk]] with the name Stephen and then [[consecration of a bishop|consecrated to the episcopacy]] in 1917 as an [[auxiliary bishop]] to minister to the needs of the Carpatho-Russian ex-Uniates, whose [[parish]]es numbered over 160 when he was received (out of roughly 200 total Russian Orthodox parishes in the American Lower 48).  After only eight years of service in the episcopacy, however, Bp. Stephen returned back to the Unia and the Carpatho-Russian ethnic diocese of the Metropolia was dissolved.
