|Copyright 1999, 2016 The Holy Eastern Orthodox Catholic and
Apostolic Church in North America, ®
OUR CLAIM IS THAT BOTH OF OUR CHURCH NAMES ARE A SERVICE MARK OF THIS CHURCH.
"American Orthodox Catholic Church" short name for "The Holy Eastern Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church in North America"® [Registered Service Mark]®. Our Logo is part of our Registered Service Mark.
"The Society of Clerks Secular of Saint Basil" was another Registered Service Mark of this Church. The Registration has cancelled but we continue to use the Service Mark so it is ours under commonlaw and was first used and established within this Church.
We suggest you go to our index page for more information on our Church and our various websites.
We now have documented proof, not only from our archives but also from the
ethnic Orthodox in America, that no independent groups claiming to be the
Society of Clerks Secular of St Basil or the AOCC are or could be us under any
name. All such claims are clearly false. Continued claims are lies and proof
these episcopi vagants are unchristian frauds.
|If you hear of others using this Church name and would like to find
out if they are a part of the original Church and corporation that was
headed by Archbishop Aftimios please do not hesitate to contact us.
