'''Concelebration''' is the act of multiple [[clergy]] conducting divine [[services]] together.  [[Rubrics]] dictate what changes are made in the services when a concelebration occurs, as distinct from when the services are performed by only one [[priest]] or also a [[deacon]].  Concelebration is often a sign of full fellowship and [[full communion|communion]] between [[jurisdiction]]s which recognize each other as fully Orthodox.

[[Hierarchical services]] are a special type of concelebration including one or more [[bishop]]s, significantly altering the text and movement in a service.

In the cases of tension between hierarchs or jurisdictions, concelebration between their respective clergy may sometimes be forbidden.  Such a prohibition is not a [[schism]] or the same as a break in communion, which marks a more significant rupture in relations.  Jurisdictions forbidding concelebration still recognize each other as fully Orthodox, but the prohibition of concelebrations may herald an eventual break in communion and possibly a full schism.
