Is Focolare well-known amongst Orthodox circles? It's active in interfaith/ecumenical activities.

Me either.  Just perusing through the link provided, it seems extremely ecumenical to me.  In addition, Holy Orthodoxy is truly catholic; the fullness of our faith handed to us by Christ and His apostles and saints is all we need.

Yes, Focolare is absolutely well-known within Orthodox circles. Please see these links regarding the recent meeting between Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople and the current president of Focolare, Maria Voce:

Relationships between the late Focolare founder, Chiara Lubich, and Patriarch Athenagoras I started in the 60s, and Lubich was instrumental in bridging that relationship with Pope Paul VI. The relationship has been growing strong ever since.

Hope this helps, Jesse
