I just received this from Fr. Panagiotes Carras, of the email group from Orthodoxyinfo.org:

According to an announcement on the web site of True Orthodox Church of Greece under Archbishop Kallinikos, Metropolitan Moses of Portland and Bishop Sergius of Loch Lomand will be received into the Synod of the TOC of Greece.  Metropolitan Moses will be received tomorrow, Saturday, May 14th at the Monastery of St. Nicholas in Paiania, Attica.  Bishop Sergius will be received on Sunday, May 15th at the Cathedral of St. Athanasius, new Philadelphia, Attica.  They will also become members of the American Eparchial Synod.
We wish Metropolitan Moses and Bishop Sergius, God's strength.

Does this mean that they have left the jurisdiction of HOCNA? 
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Received from where?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

According to Fr. Panagiotes, "Metropolitan Ephraim convinced his obedient followers, Metropolitan Makarios and Bishop Demetrios, to subscribe to the unorthodox teachings of Awake Sleeper, to form an independent Church with himself as its head and to expel Metropolitan Moses and Bishop Sergius from the Synod."   So they were not part of HONCA when they applied to the True Orthodox Church of Greece under Archbishop Kallinikos.

All this alphabet soup stuff is confusing. I'm used to seeing the group they're going to called GOC or HOTCA. When I saw TOC in the title my first thought was: "Wait! So they're going to Met. Cyprian's group now!?"  :P

It's a pity it wasn't a collective decision by the HOCNA as a whole :-/.

Metropolitan Moses and Bishop Sergios Black are both homosexuals. I am sorry that we live in such atrocious times. People like this never should have been consecrated. Homosexuals and Ecumenists are ruining Orthodoxy for the rest of us.

I don't have proof Bishop Sergios is a homosexual.

GOC clergy are corrupt and unethical, and they lack Christian love. Good grief, Father Maxumus' email wasn't even private. You people need to love the Church and truth so much, that you will develop a "no tolerance" policy toward these kind of corruptions. Rise out of your indifference and complacency.

As best I can tell, there is no HOCNA as a whole anymore. 

Lord, have mercy!

Their website still exists, but there has been nothing new posted since January 2014.
Enter HOCNA into Google search.

HOCNA still exists but they are much smaller than before since most of them joined HOTCA last year (that is, most of those who hadn't already joined with Met Moses et al in 2011).
