The '''Russian Orthodox Church in the USA''' is the distinct name of the group of [[parish]]es of the Russian mission in America that recognizes the canonical authority of the [[Church of Russia]] and was known as the [[Russian Exarchate of North America]] before [[autocephaly]] was granted to the [[Metropolia]] in 1970.
The parishes of the [[Exarchate]] that remained under the canonical protection of the Moscow Patriarchate after the grant of autocephaly came to be known as the Russian Orthodox Church in the USA under the oversight of an [[auxiliary]] [[bishop]]. {{stub}}
