        1870, June Stefan Egorov Mitropolskii became Bishop of newly established ecclesiatical

        center of the Aleutian and Alaskan Diocese

        Church headquarters transferred from Sitka to San Francisco

        1878, Dec. Nikolai Pavlovich Zass became Bishop Nestor

        1887, Dec. Vasilii Sokolovskii became Bishop Vladimir

        1891, Sept. Mikhail Zakharovich Ziorov became Bishop Nikolai, the last Bishop of the

        Aleutian Islands and Alaska

        1900 Diocese title changed to Aleutian Islands and North America

        1905 Episcopal See transferred from San Francisco to New York





        In the period before the sale of Alaska to the United States, the Church directed its principal efforts

        toward the conversion of the native populations. It also assisted the Russian-American Company,

        which had a monopoly to trade in Alaska, in its programs for educating and Russianizing the

        natives. With the arrival of Americans in Alaska in the 1870s and 1880s, various Protestant

        denominations began working among the Alaskan peoples. Spurred by this challenge to its

        dominance, the Russian Church showed renewed activity in both the religious and secular realms.

        Later in the nineteenth century the Church also responded to the spiritual and other needs of the

        large emigrant groups coming to North America from Russia and neighboring Orthodox countries.

        Many of these Slav, Greek, and Syrian arrivals settled in eastern and midwestern industrial and

        mining areas. Others moved on to the West Coast, particularly to the San Francisco area, while

        gold mining lured others to Juneau, Alaska, and beyond.

            1995 was the 25th anniversary of autocephaly of the Orthodox Church in America. Metropolitan Theodosius discussed the 1970 autocephalic act by the Russian Orthodox Church, OCA's mother church..

            THE PATH TO AUTOCEPHALY AND BEYOND: "MILES TO GO BEFORE WE SLEEP"
            Against the background of renewed efforts to bring together the Orthodox of America into a single canonically integrated whole, Metropolitan Theodosius, head of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA), describes the steps leading up to the granting of autocephaly to the OCA in 1970. Twenty five years later the basic problem is the same: how to overcome attachment to the status quo and the Mother Churches' desire to maintain control over their 'children' abroad. What should happen in the diaspora is not really in doubt: the canons of the Church are clear. What is in doubt is our willingness to conform ourselves to the will of God. The article is reprinted from The Orthodox Church, Vol. 31: 6/7 (June-July 1995), pp. 7-8, 10.
