Reincorporation of existing corporations
Religious Corporations (RCO) CHAPTER 51, ARTICLE 8-A
§ 169-e. Reincorporation of existing corporations. Any Ukrainian
Orthodox church of the Greek rite heretofore incorporated, other than
those incorporated under the provisions of article five of the religious
corporations law, may reincorporate under the provisions of this
article, by filing in the county clerk's office in the county in which
its principal place of worship is located, a certificate, signed by the
trustees in office at the time of such reincorporation, or by the
majority of them, setting forth that they desire to reincorporate under
the provisions of this act, the corporate name by which such church
shall be known, the county, town, city or village where its place of
worship is or is intended to be located, and the number and the names of
the trustees who are to hold office until the next annual meeting of
said corporation. If the bishop or archbishop having ecclesiastical
jurisdiction over such church is not one of the trustees signing the
certificate of reincorporation, such certificate shall not be valid
until said bishop or archbishop has given his assent in writing to such
reincorporation and the same is made a part of the certificate.
Immediately upon the filing of such certificate all the right, title and
interest of such organization or corporation in any estate, real or
personal, shall, with all franchise and charter rights, be vested in
said body corporate and politic so created under this act and the
original incorporation of such organization shall be null and void.

The incorporation of a new church or reincorporation of an old church
under this article shall not be valid until the same has been approved
by a justice of the supreme court.
