Communion in Orthodox church
Question from LaVerne on 07-13-2015:
May we receive Communion in a Greek Orthodox church?
Answer by Catholic Answers on 07-21-2015:
LaVerne--

Under ordinary circumstances, no. Not only are Catholics ordinarily expected to receive Communion from their own ministers, but the Orthodox churches ordinarily do not to administer the sacraments to Catholics. So, refraining from Communion in non-Catholic churches is not only something the Catholic Church usually expects of Catholics, doing so is, in most cases, a matter of respect for the discipline of Orthodox Christians.
