I think it's a little late for a name change, but we'll see what Syosset does! Fr. John

Yeah, exactly. I figured it was worth a mention since one of the OCA's bishops was saying this, but I've not yet seen anything from Syosset about this. --Rdr. Andrew 21:19, 20 Apr 2005 (CDT)

Diocesan changes

Reflected the merger of Washington with New York and New Jersey and the retirement of Archbishop Peter. Perhaps someone better at Wiki programming can review to make certain I didn't make any mistakes? The source is as follows, read down after the selection of Archimandrite Alejo as bisop-elect of the Mexican Exarchate:

Eastern Pennsylania

Here's the source for the news of the election of Bishop Tikhon (Mollard):

The citation from the statute is correct in terms of the official name, but the same statute also makes reference to the Orthodox Church in America without capitalizing the "t" in "the".[1]

Honestly, I think that Bp. Tikhon is out on his own on this one. --[[User:ASDamick|—Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!)]] 15:17, 1 Jun 2005 (CDT)

Autocephaly/Autonomy in 1924

The implication in the timeline, that the OCA proclaimed its "Autocephaly/Autonomy" in 1924, is a bit misleading. Although it is true that the Metropolia "broke administrative ties" with Moscow at this time, this by no means implies that they were proclaiming ecclesiastical autocephaly or autonomy. Those actions were intended as a temporary reaction to the turmoil in Russia, not a permament and canonically binding ecclesiastical declaration. The OCA's present status was not a unilateral declaration, as most of the more recent autocephalies were, rather was negotiated with the Patriarchate of Moscow prior to the official declaration in April of 1970 by the Church of Russia.
