The Orthodox Church of Greece, Holy Synod in Resistance, was a traditionalist Greek Orthodox jurisdiction following the church calendar. As with the other Old Calendarists in Greece, the Holy Synod in Resistance separated from the State Church of Greece, considering it to be in error since its adoption of the secular calendar in 1924. It was opposed to the ecumenical movement on the grounds that ecumenism is a violation of Church teaching regarding the primacy of the Orthodox Church, though it expresses strong support for religious toleration. It did not deny that New Calendarist bodies or Orthodox involved in the ecumenical movement are with Grace, as do the other Old Calendarists in Greece, but considered them to be ailing and in error. It did not maintain communion with the New Calendarists and ecumenists. This church was in communion with the Old Calendar Orthodox Churches of Bulgaria and Romania and that part of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia under Agafangel (Pashkovsky) of Odessa which did not unite with the Russian Orthodox Church in Moscow, in May 2007, forming a coalition of nearly one million traditionalist Orthodox Christians.
