Holy Orthodox Autocephalous Church

Of Epirus

Based on the Decree from the 25th day of August 2009, in which the Grand Prince of Epirus, Don Davide Pozzi Sacchi of Santa Sofia, in his capacity as High Protector of the Orthodox Church of Epirus, with a special Tomos had erected the Holy Metropolia Of The Holy Autocephalous Orthodox Church Of The Kingdom Of Epirus (or short OCE for Orthodox Church of Epirus).

The Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople himself formally recognized the new State entity of the Kingdom of Epirus in the early 1920s and solemnized it with the attribution of autocephaly to the Epirot Orthodox Church under the high protectorate of King ZogrĂ fos.


Ever since, the OCE with its dependences worldwide provides pastoral services to all Orthodox, especially to third and fourth generations of Epirate exiles present in North America and elsewhere. The OCE is in communion with all Orthodox branches allowing for canonical relations and paying homage to the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.
