The Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece is an Old Calendarist Church which in 1935 broke from the Church of Greece over the use of the Revised Julian Calendar. The adoption of the new calendar was viewed as an abrogation of the Orthodox Church's historical festal unity and a contradiction of Orthodox self-understanding by establishing common worship with non-Orthodox and furthering the goals of Ecumenism, while sacrificing festal unity among the Orthodox Churches. It is not in communion with any of the mainstream Orthodox churches, though it has enjoyed occasional support from mainstream churches which have retained the Julian Calendar. It also has support from some of the monks of Mount Athos. Its current primate is Archbishop Chrysostomos II (Kiousis) of Athens and All Greece (+2010).
