The Liturgy of Mar Addai is not used in the Syrian Orthodox Church, but
is/was used in the Maronite Church under the name "sharar". Its structure
differs quite a lot from West Syriac liturgies. I attended a Liturgy
performed by Mar Bawai of the COE a few months. Apart from a few pieces,
there is hardly anything in common. The only exception is a hymn "haw
dnorone / haw dnurane" that is almost identical in both liturgies. The hymn
has no Christology.
There was a Pro Oriente meeting for the Syriac-speaking family a few weeks
back. I don't think there are any planned bi-lateral meetings between SOC
and COE, although I personally hope that such meetings do take place.

canonical liturgy (aside from mention of Nestorius, theodoret, and
dioscorus) in the Syriac Orthodox tradition?
> Are there plans for any other pro oriente meetings or meetings between the
Oriental Orthodox and the Church of the East regarding reconciliation?
