We are Canonical

THE HOLY EASTERN ORTHODOX CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC CHURCH in NORTH AMERICA® is a true and canonical Orthodox Church. We are canonical in the fact we follow the canons, use only the approved Orthodox published Liturgies and we follow the Orthodox Calendar and traditions. We do not claim to be in communion with the Old World Orthodox Churches due to their failures and violations of the canons, and their past treatment of this canonically established Orthodox Church for North America. Many no longer even view the canons as Sacred and Divine as we do. We notified the former SCOBA President by mail of our lack of interest in SCOBA membership.

Under the Ancient Canon Law enacted by the Council of Chalcedon, This can be the only lawful Orthodox authority or Jurisdiction in America.
