ROAC: Who are they? What is their history?

Post by Maria »

I have started this thread to explore the Russian Orthodox Autonomous Church (ROAC) objectively, so that our guests and inquirers can have an opportunity to learn more about the Russian Orthodox Autonomous Church. Any inflammatory accusations will be promptly moved over to the Intra-TOC Polemics Private Forum.

Since other True Orthodox jurisdictions will be explored in their own threads, please keep all your discussions in this thread focused only on the ROAC jurisdiction.

Below are some questions. Please feel free to provide links and excerpts from official sites as references.
1. What is the history of the Russian Orthodox Autonomous Church (ROAC)?
2. Who are their former hierarchs and leaders?
3. Is the ROAC in communion with any other True Orthodox jurisdictions?
4. Did the ROAC break with the ROCOR? If so, when?

Here is the link to their American Diocese:
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.
