I heard that when the Church of Greece adopted the revised Julian Calendar, its modified the liturgy by shortening it. I also hear that Old Calendar Greek Orthodox Churches have the more traditional liturgy. Could someone state what was changed? Keep it friendly and intellectual. I may or may not have heard this from this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_Old_Calendarists
Due to my lack of knowledge on Old Calendar Greek Orthodox Churches, I'm using this as my main source of information. Is it trustworthy and accurate? Thank you for your time. Pray for me.

Having had fifty years' experience of both Greek and Russian Orthodox experience, the only "shortening" of any consequence in the Greek liturgy was the dropping of the Litany of the Catechumens. However, in recent years, many parishes in emigrant nations have reinstated it.
