I checked my browser history and came up with the URL:
American Orthodox Church
This first page will go directly to an obit. Apparently Bishop +Harvey Beagle of of Wapato (Yakima), Washington died yesterday. May G_D keep him close.
Click on the Next button at the bottom of the page, and you go to the home page of the “American Orthodox Church and the North American Orthodox Church”.
I’ll let you suss out their authenticity, as I am but a heretic worshiping in an apostate church. :imsorry:
FWIW, on the OCA website (oca.org) in the History section, there is the “Tomos of Autocephaly” wherein the Moscow Patriarchate declares and confirms that: The Russian Orthodox Greek Catholic Church in North America is confirmed and proclaimed an Autocephalous Church and named “The Autocephalous Orthodox Church in America" This happened in 1970.
The AOC, on the other hand, is claiming to have to been established by Patriarch +Tikhon. The have whole pages dedicated to their lines of succession and canonicity, which arouses suspicion in me. I suspect that the confusion comes from the fact that the Tikhon had been imprisoned bye the Soviets and the Holy Synod had reason to believe he was dead, and so took action on their own. As I understand it when they found out he was still alive the managed to contact him and he confirmed the actions they had taken, and also created what became known as ROCOR, or Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, so that Russian Orthodoxy would not be beholden to the communists as the Greek Orthodox Church is to the Islamists in Istanbul (Constantinople). It’s possible that he also created the AOC at that time, but so far I can’t find any independent sources confirming that.
