At the Divine Liturgy for the Great Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos, the Saint Vladimir Seminary community was honored to have three hierarchs serving: His Beatitude Metropolitan Jonah, presiding; His Eminence Archbishop Justinian of Naro-Fominsk and Administrator of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA; and His Eminence, Metropolitan Kallistos [Ware], Bishop of Diokleia, concelebrating. The seminary community was especially privileged to hear the homily by Metropolitan Kallistos, widely renowned author, teacher, and churchman, who is visiting the campus as a participant in the North American Conference of the Fellowship of Ss. Alban and Sergius being held on the school’s campus.
If Met. Kallistos did concelebrate, as opposed to just attend, I think it would be the first one-on-one concelebration of an EP hierarch with the OCA.

Almost all of the EP hierarchs in the US have concelebrated with OCA hierarchs. Many times. No big deal. As has Met Kallistos in the past.
