The '''Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece''' is an [[Old Calendarist]] body (one of the [[Florinites|Florinite]] jurisdictions) which in 1935 broke from the [[Church of Greece]] over the latter's use of the [[Revised Julian Calendar]], believing instead that the [[Julian Calendar]] is the only correct calendar for the Orthodox Church.  It is not in communion with the mainstream Orthodox Church.  Its current [[primate]] is Archbishop Chrysostomos II.
