Julian calendar — or so-called "old style". Used in Jerusalem, Russian, Georgian and Serbian Orthodox Churches.
The Gregorian calendar is a Finnish Orthodox Church.
The new Julian calendar — all other Local Churches. Matches for several centuries from Gregorian on "fixed" dates, but Easter is determined according to the old style.
The first component of the Church calendar — the Calendar contains descriptions of holidays, fasts, and the memory of the saints and events in the order of the numbers each month. It starts on the 1st of September according to the Julian calendar (the Ecclesiastical new year) and ends on August 31, encompassing the stationary annual cycle. The second and most important part of the calendar is the Paschalion, which depends not only from the sun but also from the moon. Easter and associated range of holidays are therefore "moving" relative to conventional solar calendar (in the interval of five weeks). The combination of these two liturgical circles (repeated again in 532 years) — fixed and mobile — and is actually Orthodox calendar.
