(This story is cited from the Roman Catholic news site for the SF archdiocese, the only place where I found a listing.)

The Greek Orthodox Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco and the Roman Catholic Archbishop George Niederauer will visit Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, Pope Benedict XVI, and Archbishop Hieronymous of Athens, in the course of a twelve-day ecumenical trip.

From the article:
The trip will also be an opportunity for Archbishop Niederauer and his companions to get a first-hand look at religious persecution of the Orthodox Church in Istanbul, Turkey, when they visit Patriarch Bartholomew. Patriarch Bartholomew is the 270th successor of the 2,000-year-old Christian church, founded by St. Andrew the Apostle, and is considered first among the Orthodox primates who head national churches.
