The Catholic - Oriental Orthodox Regional Forum (C-OORF) launches a new book hosted at The Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales on Monday 23 January with Co-Chairs of C-OORF: His Grace Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of The Coptic Orthodox Church in The United Kingdom and His Grace Archbishop Kevin McDonald, Archbishop Emeritus of Southwark.

A book will be launched containing the Joint Statements issued by the Catholic and Oriental Orthodox Churches, and members of the Forum will talk about its aims and purpose.

In the foreword to Joint Statements, His Grace Bishop Angaelos said the following:

“The establishment of this Forum is unprecedented worldwide and provides a platform for shared life and witness between our ancient Churches, and in that same spirit, this book and the agreements published within it, show the commonalities that we have shared and continue to share, which enable us to work together for the glory of God and the service of His people.”
