Welcoming Agreement for Independence of the Church
Nov. 02, 1948

. . . . . After many years of negotiation to compose the differences between the Ethiopian Church and
the Church of Alexandria, We are happy to say that an agreement has been reached concerning the
consecration of Ethiopian Archbishops and Bishops, which gives to the Ethiopian Archbishop
the right to consecrate Ethiopian bishops, thus securing an autonomous religious administration.

Even as We devote Our efforts to the improvement of the public life of Our people We are confident
that their Beatitudes the Holy Fathers of the Church will dedicate themselves to the moral
education of the people. In this We will not fail to extend Our assistance.
Haile Selassie the First - November 2, 1948
