According to the Thyetira Confession, which the EP accepts, if there is no Orthodox Church near you, you can have communion in a Catholic Church. I don't know if this exception officially extends to noncanonical "Orthodox" churches, to "Oriental" churches, or to Protestant churches - although some Orthodox think that an exception applies to those churches too.

I've never heard of this.

I have never heard of the Thyetira Confession.  However, I was told (and know for a fact) that RC Priests and Bishops will administer Sacraments to Orthodox.  I have even been told (although I have never seen it myself) that Orthodox Priests are allowed to administer Sacraments to RC in extreme conditions.  I have been told this by a couple of different priests from differing jurisdictions with the only difference being how they are administered.

God did not create man equal.  Samuel Colt made man equal.  Blessed be the Peacemaker.
