rv -- the Archdiocese has "self-rule" not "autonomy" (being the subject of much discussion over that very point)
'''Autonomy''' (literally, "self-ruled") is the status of a church within the [[Orthodox Church]] whose [[primate|primatial]] [[bishop]] is confirmed by one of the [[autocephaly|autocephalous]] Orthodox Churches. In all other respects, an autonomous church is entirely self-governing. There are currently seven six autonomous churches within the [[Orthodox Church]]: the [[Church of Sinai]], the [[Church of Finland]], the [[Church of Japan]], the [[Church of Ukraine]], the [[Church of Estonia]], and the [[Church of China]] and Self-Ruled Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America.
