The Apostolic See of Saints Mark and Stephen

Saint Alexander Nevsky, Grand Prince of Kiev, Prince of Novgorod, rejecting subservience to the Roman diocese. Although the Imperial Roman Church is Apostolic heir to the temporal patrimony of St. Peter, the Apostolic See of Saints Mark and Stephen continues that legacy of autocephalous autonomy, which has been confirmed numerous times over the last millenium, most recently in 2013, and thus is not subservient to the Bishop of Rome. Although we embrace the churches of the various patriarchs around the world as Christian brethren, this Apostolic See is not subject to any other jurisdiction.
