During the visit, both sides exchanged well wishes marking the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as well as means to promote cooperation between the various ecclesiastical institutions in Jordan.
Both sides stressed that these institutions serve the homeland and all shades of the Jordanian society particularly in the educational field in which the Churches and the Christians have excelled over the past decades. They also lauded the joint prayers to be held on September 1 marking the “Season of Creation.”
