Ethiopian Catholic Church

The Ethiopian Catholic Church is a Metropolitan sui iuris Eastern particular Church within the Catholic Church and uses the Ethiopic liturgical rite. Its membership includes inhabitants of Ethiopia and Eritrea. It is the Catholic “counterpart” to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, an Oriental Orthodoxy which is separated in schism from both the Catholic Church and the Eastern churches. It shares a Divine Liturgy and customs with the Ethiopian Orthodox, while differing in its Christological view some beliefs about the Sacraments, and its recognition of the Pope as the successor of St. Peter and his universal jurisdiction. Liturgical latinisation is widespread.[citation needed]
