On November 16, 2009, His Beatitude, [[Jonah (Paffhausen) of Washington|Metropolitan Jonah]] (OCA) hosted His Eminence, [[Hilarion (Kapral) of New York|Metropolitan Hilarion]], (First Hierarch of ROCOR), at the [[Chancery office of the Orthodox Church in America|OCA Chancery]]. The two Metropolitans discussed the initiation of an official dialogue between the Orthodox Church in America and ROCOR and to study ways by which they might strengthen their relationship. During their meeting, the two Metropolitans concelebrated a Memorial Litiya for His Holiness, [[Pavel (Stojcevic) of Serbia|Patriarch Pavle of Serbia]], who fell asleep in the Lord on Sunday, November 15, 2009. This marked the first time that the Metropolitans of the OCA and ROCOR have served together since the mid-1930s.
