Regarding your post where you suggest using ‘Brother’. All Orthodox monks, except rank novices, are always addressed as ‘Father’. Amongst themselves they may at times use ‘Brother’.

Dear Mr. Canarvon,
‘Brother (Name)’ is the form suggested by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America office on 79th Street in New York. They publish a book every year on what is what and who is who in their church and it included a section on forms of address. This is the form they publish and then I confirmed the forms with other such offices around the US.
