Syrian Catholic Church

The Syrian Catholic Church is a Christian church in the Levant in communion with the pope having practices and rite in common with the Jacobites. They are one of the Eastern-Rite Catholic churches. These 'Syrian Catholics' number about as many as the Jacobites; their head, the Syrian Catholic Patriarch[?] of Antioch, lives at Beirut. They have a separate church organization from the Melkites[?], Maronites, and Chaldaean Catholics[?], which are other communities of the Levant in communion with Rome.
