On Monday, the 17th/30th of November 2015, a three-member Hieratic Delegation from the Ethiopian Church in Jerusalem visited the Patriarchate.
The Delegation was welcomed by H.B. Theophilos, Patriarch of Jerusalem.
Discussed at the meeting was the problem caused by the gathering of Ethiopian faithful in front of their chapel in the area of the Holy Court of the Church of the Resurrection, which is in breach of the status quo for religious veneration.
His Beatitude suggested the Ethiopian Delegation ways in which to avoid overcrowding caused by the chapel’s narrowness, which stands on the way to the monastery of the Copts.
