The Archbishop of Ohrid and Macedonia (Macedonian: Архиепископ Охридски и Македонски) is the title given to the primate of the Macedonian Orthodox Church. The Archbishop of Ohrid and Macedonia exercises jurisdiction over the Macedonian Orthodox Church members in the Republic of Macedonia and in exarchates in diaspora. Additionally to the title "Archbishop of Ohrid and Macedonia", the title "mister mister" (господин господин) is given, always after the first one.
In 1959, the Macedonian Orthodox Church was declared as the restoration of the Archbishopric of Ohrid. The declaration was celebrated in a common liturgy by Macedonian priests and the Serbian Patriarch German II in 1959 in Skopje. The Archbishop Dositheus II was enthroned as Archbishop of Ohrid and Macedonia, continuing in the lineage of the Archbishops of Ohrid.
In 1962, the Serbian Patriarch German II and Russian Patriarch Alexius I visited the Macedonian Orthodox Church on the feast of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Ohrid. The two Patriarchs and the Macedonian Archbishop Dositheus II celebrated Holy Liturgy marking the first occasion where the leader of the Macedonian church met with heads of other Orthodox churches.
On July 19, 1967, in Ohrid, the Macedonian Orthodox Church self-declared autocephaly from the Serbian Orthodox Church, as was the will of the church's faithful, but as yet remains unrecognised by other Orthodox churches.
