If the penitent (the one confessing) is Greek Orthodox, not in full communion with Rome, he is welcome to confess to a Catholic priest, either a Roman/Latin one or a "Greek" or "Byzantine" Catholic. He is also permitted by the Catholic Church to receive any of the other Sacraments/Mysteries in our churches, without this indicating in any way a wish to become Catholic. However, his own jurisdiction may not permit this (it can even be excommunicable depending on jurisdictions), so he should check with his own parish priest, spiritual Father or bishop. Usually the Orthodox bishops only permit it in cases where there is no Orthodox parish or mission accessible to the Christian in question.If by 'Greek Orthodox Catholic' we mean someone who is a Byzantine-rite Catholic following Greek traditions but already in full communion with Rome, then he can also receive any of the Sacraments in any Catholic Church. It's not an issue..Catholic AnswerAs noted in the answer above, your question is a little confused as there are Greek Orthodox Christians and there are Greek Catholic Christians, they both follow an identical Rite, while the first in not in communion with the Pope, and the second is. If by "Greek Orthodox Catholic" you are referring to an Greek Orthodox Christian, then, WITH THE LOCAL BISHOP'S PERMISSION, the Greek Orthodox may receive confession and Holy Communion if he is in immediate danger of death and is unable to get to a priest of his own communion. Under any other circumstances, he would be required to convert first. A Greek Catholic Christian is already Catholic and is required to receive Holy Communion and confession regularly from a Catholic priest. Please note that there is no such thing as a "Roman Catholic priest" unless you are speaking of a Catholic priest in the diocese of Rome: It's just Catholic, not Roman Catholic. Roman is an epithet first commonly used in England after the protestant revolt to describe the Catholic Church. It is never used by the official Catholic Church.

Your own personal religious beliefs can only be decided by you, so you could choose to be Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, or indeed not hold any religious commitment at all. It is entirely up to you..Catholic AnswerYou follow the rite of either parent, most likely the rite in which you were baptized. However, the Orthodox Churches are not technically separate rites, they are in schism. If you mother is Catholic, and you were baptized in the Catholic Church, then you follow whatever rite that she is.
