Our National Church

The Orthodox Church in America (OCA)

“Presentation” is a parish of the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America, which in turn is a diocese of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA.

The OCA is governed by the Holy Synod of Bishops, of which our hierarchs are members.

The OCA originated as the Metropolia of the Russian Orthodox Church, which severed its ties with the Russian Church after the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917. In 1970 the OCA received a Tomos of Autocephaly from the Russian Patriarchate, and has functioned as an autocephalous, American church since then.
