Thanks for the reply. I found a website about all the episcopi vagantes and I had no idea how many different denominations claim to be Orthodox. And sure enough, both of the groups that I referenced were on the website. Now I'm curious though about the claim on Canon 6 of Nicea. I read on a couple of websites about canon 6 and it doesn't seem to be saying that the way Orthodoxy is in America with the different archdioceses are wrong. Any thoughts?
And also, I realize that the "Benedictine Fathers" and "Celtic Orthodox" that I mentioned are not Orthodox, but is it true that when Rome split off from the church, some Benedictine Fathers belonging to Rome felt that the Pope was wrong with his decision, so they fled to Jerusalem and Mt. Athos? If this did happen, did any of these Benedictine monks stay Orthodox?
And is it true that after the East-West schism, Ireland felt that the Pope was wrong so Ireland kind of disregarded the split while continuing to do as they previously had, and later the Pope gave the King of England the okay to take Ireland as long as he made it Catholic (as to which the King killed many of the previous Irish clergy and replaced them with Catholic ones)? I'm just wondering if this is actual fact or just hearsay. I got my information from the sites that I mentioned on the OP. Again I realize that they are not Orthodox but I'm just curious.
