I've noticed that in some jurisdictions officially listed as "New Calendar", some parishes continue to be on the Old Calendar. Thus, in addition to the Alaska Diocese, the OCA has the Russian Mission in San Francisco and some other parishes and monasteries in Oregon, California and Canada. I've also read that some Bulgarian parishes continue to be on the old calendar, and these commemorate Patriarch Maksim, not the Old Calendar Synod of Bishop Photius. At least one Antiochian parish (originally Russian) is also on the Old Calendar, in Australia.
Are there parishes and monasteries in the Greek Orthodox Churches (aside from Jerusalem and Sinai and outside of Athos) that continue to be on the OC? I know that St. Irene and its metochia used to be OC but that they have entirely shifted to the NC since 2004 (?)
Similarly, I've read that the Netherlands diocese of the Moscow Patriarchate is on the New Calendar AND Gregorian Pashcalion.
What other New Calendar jurisdictions continue to allow parishes and dioceses to be on the Old Calendar? Are these Old Calendar groups in NC jurisdictions growing or shrinking? Similarly, what other Old Calendar jurisdictions allow for New Calendar parishes?
Finally, I'm confused by the situation in the Orthodox Churches of Poland and in the Czech and Slovak Republics. It seems that in Poland, the upper part of the Metropolitan's Cathedral is on the New Calendar (and that is where he serves) while the lower part of the cathedral is on the Old Calendar! The dioceses are also a patchwork of old calendar and new calendar, although the Polish monasteries and the eastern Polish dioceses are solidly OC. The situation seems to be even more complicated in the Czech and Slovak lands.
I hope that somebody could enlighten me, or add to my post.
liturgical nut and devout latin catholic who has a strange fascination and sympathy for russian orthodoxy!
