5. When one is 'chrismated'/baptized in the Faith, one may communicate at an Orthodox

Church whether in 'native' location or elsewhere.
Should be primarily 'canonical'.
Most Eastern Orthodox jurisdictions have 'familial' reciprocity, for lack of a better description on my part.

My parents 'presented' me to Orthodoxy in a Carpatho-Russian parish/church community. Have subsequently communicated in a Greek Church, and then OCA.

I sang in the choir of my 'mother' church. Mostly the services in Slavonic. The younguns favored the Liturgy in English.

Then husband and I sang the services at the Greek Church. Their melodies, intonations plus the the language sent me to the heavens! So loved.

Now it's mostly English in the OCA. Except one hymn here or there in Slavonic. At Pascha we sing "Christ is Risen" in a multitude of languages.
