UPDATE: Chaldean Patriarch and Unity with Assyrian Church of the East

Following on from a previous blog post

Mar Dinkha IV (Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East) has accepted an invitation from Mar Louis Sako (Patriarch of the Chaldean Catholic Church) for ecumenical dialogue between the two Churches. In the hope to achieve full communion.

"We are very happy with your message to us regarding your good will to renew the dialogue with us aiming for unity; we also agree and support you in this good aim to be close to each other as brothers in Christ and the sons and daughters of one nation" - Mar Dinkha IV
"We hope that when we meet together we will discuss the difficulties facing the sons and daughters of our Church and nation in the Middle East and in the whole world, and we will establish a joint committee to have discussions for the purpose of joint action" - Mar Dinkha IV

Please pray that this Ecumenical dialogue will be efficient and fruitful.


Through the prayers of the Birth-Giver of God Maryam, and Mor Ephrem. God Bless you.


  1. Just a side question, If amd when they unite by what name will the community be called, Chaldeam or Assyrian?

  2. I thought that they were already in communion.

    2. If they were united there would be one Church and not two.
