Current Events
Although Fr Gabriel Popescu was present at the foundation of SCCOCA, the [[Church of Romania|Romanian Orthodox Church]] was never an actual member of SCCOCA since, according to Patriarch Teoctist, the [[Church of Romania|Romanian Patriarchate]] never sanctioned this move.
==Current EventsRegarding the [[Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia]]==
According to the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, SCCOCA still exists because member churches concelebrated on the Vespers of Orthodoxy and Bright Fridayin 2006.
:"In March 2006, Vespers of the Sunday of Orthodoxy was celebrated at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Marrickville with Archbishop [[Stylianos (Harkianakis) of Australia|Stylianos]] of the [[Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia|Greek Orthodox Church]], the Bishop [[Milutin (Knezevic) of Australia and New Zealand|Milutin]] of the [[Serbian Orthodox Church in Australia and New Zealand|Serbian Orthodox Church]], as well as clergy from the [[Australian jurisdictions without a local bishop|Russian Orthodox Church (Moscow Partriarchate)]] and the [[Australian jurisdictions without a local bishop|Romanian Orthodox Church]]. In total about 35 clergy were present surrounded by about 500 faithful. The event was powerful, sombre and moving as each of the jurisdictions read the testimony from the [[Seventh_Ecumenical_Council|7th Ecumenical council]] in their respective languages as well as English. The ceremony ended with exchanges of words of love and solidarity by the bishops. In similar spirit on the morning of Friday after Pascha (28 April 2006), SCOCCA again joined to concelebrate the Paschal Liturgy and to share a common Paschal meal at the Greek Orthodox Parish of St. Euphemia, Bankstown NSW."

Consistent with its earlier stated view, the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand says there cannot be current events in an organisation that [ "is dead"] (Metropolitan Archbishop [[Paul (Saliba) of Australia and New Zealand|Paul]]).
