Progress toward Old Calendar Unity
In 2011, Metropolitan Moses of Portland and Bishop Sergios of Loch Lomond from the [[Holy Orthodox Church in North America]] were received into the Genuine Greek Orthodox Church of America, along with several HOCNA parishes and clergy from both the United States and Canada. In 2012, Bishop Demetrios of Carlisle from the [[Holy Orthodox Church in North America]], along with many parishes and clergy, and along with over half the monastics from Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Brookline, MA, were received by the Genuine Greek Orthodox Church of America, with Bishop Demetrios being given the title Bishop of Boston.
In 2014, after months of negotiations, full unity was achieved between the Genuine Orthodox Church of Greece (Synod of Archbishop Kallinikos, of which the GGOCA is a member) and the Holy Synod in Resistance (the so-called "moderate" Old Calendarists) with the latter ceasing to exist as a separate administrative entity. This unity also established full communion between the largest factions of Old Calendarists in Greece, Romania and Bulgaria, along with the remnant Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (Synod of Metropolitan Agafangel), made up of those who refused to reunite with the Moscow Patriarchate in 2007.
