Metropolitan offers Fraternal greetings to Newly appoint Bishop

His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos, Metropolitan of the Northeast American Diocese, sent fraternal greetings to His Grace Bishop David, on His Grace's recent appointment as the Diocesan Bishop of the newly formed Coptic Orthodox Diocese of New York & New England.

In His Grace's fraternal letter, Mar Nicholovos pointed out "The Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church and the Coptic Orthodox Church have always enjoyed the blessing of being sister churches, as we belong to the ancient family of Oriental Orthodox Churches that share the same One Holy, Apostolic, and uncorrupt faith."

His Grace further share that both Churches must "continue working with one another and build up our relationship in witnessing our sacred faith to the people of this land."

The Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church and Coptic Orthodox Church are sister churches, belonging to the ancient family of Oriental Orthodox Churches. Other Churches in the family of Oriental Orthodox Churches include the Armenian, Syriac, Ethiopian, and Eritrean Orthodox Churches.
