The Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church participated in the thirteenth meeting of the International Joint Commission for Theological Dialogue between Roman Catholic and Oriental Orthodox Churches in Cairo, Egypt from January 30 – February 6, 2016.
His Grace Metropolitan Dr. Gabriel Mar Gregorios, and His Grace Metropolitan Dr. Youhanon Mar Demetrios represented the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church in this important meeting hosted by the His Holiness Pope Tawadros II.
Joint Commission for Theological Dialogue began in January 2003 as a joint initiative of the ecclesiastical authorities of the Oriental Orthodox family of churches and the Roman Catholic Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
In the last decade the commission has discussed the pursuit of communion among the member churches, by considering historical studies on the status of communion that existed among the geographically dispersed churches in the earliest centuries of the Christian movement.
His Holiness Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Paulose II, Catholicos of the East and Primate of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church hosted the eleventh meeting of the Joint Commission in Pampakuda, Kerala, India in January 2014.
