SOCA Saint Paisius Serbian Orthodox Monastery (Safford AZ)

Saint Paisius Serbian Orthodox Monastery in Safford, Arizona, belongs to the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America (SOCA), Western American Diocese.

Prior to 2000, when the monastery was received into SOCA, it was a part of the Holy Orthodox Archdiocese of Vasiloupolis. It was also part of the Saint Herman of Alaska Brotherhood.

However, has been told by someone who should be in a position to know that the monastery severed its connection to the brotherhood around the same time it joined the SOCA. The monastery *is* listed separately from those groups still affiliated with the brotherhood on the website of the Western American Diocese.
