Nuns are a different story when it comes to the altar. Also, there is a difference between a woman being blessed to read, as is the case in many churches, and a woman being tonsured an actual Reader. I don't know of that happening in the OCA DOS, but there are many churches where women have been blessed to read at services.

That depends on the church you go to. I've been to GOA and they say the Catachumen and some don't.
And another would be the elements of the Liturgy. For example, in the GOA parish I worshipped in, we did not say the Prayer for the Catechumens. Whereas, in the OCA parish I presenlty worship in, we do say it.
(Sorry I didn't think to add this to my previous post.)
