I was a member of ROCOR (the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia).

ROCOR, founded by hierarchs who participated in the Council of 1917-1918, is the legitimate (canonical) successor of the Russian Church of the times of the Christian Orthodox Empire.

After the death of our last First Hierarch Metropolitan Vitaly (Ustinoff), ROCOR no longer exists as an establishment.

I am looking to get in touch with my brothers and sisters in Christ, former members of ROCOR, or people who are interested in this topic.

Contact me on the forum or by e-mail: Email removed. Please don't post personal email addresses on the board. Pravoslavbob, Section Moderator.

Katya1965 do you mean the group that did not join the MP in 2008? This group here:

There is also this blog here:

I am not sure if they are connected with the RPATs [Russian Orthodox Autonomous Church] in Russia which has recently seen persecution by the government based on the "ILLEGAL EVANGELISM" law ironically usually used against Protestants & Jehovah's Witnesses not Orthodox believers.

Yes
The internetsobor link won't load.
The Remnant ROCOR site scares me beyond words. No words. Please explain how this came about in simple kindergarten terminology.

Is the group in Russia referred to in the stetson.edu link related to the Remnant ROCOR group? This is some wild stuff. I don't know squat.

Internetsobor.org seems to be a site of Metropolitan Agafangel.
After 2001 and till the death of Metropolitan Vitaly they were not in communion. So the more Metropolitan Agafangel was excommunicated by Metropolitan Vitaly. Can we think of members of his church as followers of Metropolitan Vitaly?
In this context the fact that the Metropolitan Agafangel canonized Metropolutan Vitaly as Saint in 2020 looks strange.
