Holy Synod of the OCA on Autocephaly

The Holy Synod of the American Orthodox Church (OCA) recently released an epistle to its flock on the Russian Orthodox Church's granting of independence (autocephaly) to its daughter in North America. The epistle reminded the American Orthodox faithful of the purpose of the OCA not to master the jurisdictions of the other Local Orthodox Churches currently present in the Americas, but rather to be the servant of their unity, to work with them to achieve a unity that will be acceptable to all the sister Orthodox Churches in the Old World as well as to the New World's only autocephalous church, the OCA. The full epistle can be found here.
