      THE STANDING COMMITTEE OF THE ORIENTAL ORTHODOX CHURCHES

      Jan 15, 2009 - Following the meeting of the Executive Committee of
      the Middle East Council of Churches (MECC) on 15 January, the members
      of the Standing Committee of the Oriental Orthodox Churches in the
      Middle East, met in the evening at the Armenian Catholicosate of
      Cilicia, Antelias (Lebanon).

      H.E. Metropolitan Bishoy and H.G. Bishop Mark represented the Coptic
      Orthodox Church, and H.E. Metropolitan George Saliba and H.G. Bishop
      Daniel represented the Syrian Orthodox Church. His Grace Bishop Nareg
      represented the Armenian Orthodox Church. The General Secretary of
      MECC also attended the meeting.

      In the first part of the agenda they discussed the relationships of
      the Oriental Orthodox Churches in the region with the MECC and the
      World Council of Churches, and the status of theological bilateral
      dialogues. In this context they discussed the implications of the
      visit of His Holiness Aram I to the Vatican on the life of the
      churches in the Middle East. In the second part, they discussed two
      forthcoming meetings. One, the Oriental Orthodox and Roman Catholic
      theological dialogue to be held in the end of January, and two, the
      meeting in May 2009 of the Heads of the Oriental Orthodox Churches in
      the Middle East, H.H. Pope Shenouda III, H.H. Patriarch Zakka I Iwas,
      and H.H. Catholicos Aram I.
