Reincorporation of existing corporations
Religious Corporations (RCO) CHAPTER 51, ARTICLE 8-B
§ 179. Reincorporation of existing corporations. Any Ukrainian
Orthodox church 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
article, 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 article 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.
