Church of Jerusalem

What is the Catholic church stance on this group. I know they say the Assyrian Church of the East has valid sacrements but what about the Church of Jerusalem?
ARe there 5 groups that can from your guys point of view trace their history to the Apostles?
Oriental Orthodoxy
Assyrian Church of the East
Church of Jerusalem
thanks BH


I have never heard of them, so I suspect that the Catholic Church has not made any statement about them, but I could be wrong. I also suspect that they may be a break-away group whose “Apostolic Succession” is questionable. Either that, or they are a newer group whose “apostolic succession” is based on their adherance to the teachings of the apostles (rather what they think the apostles taught). Sounds like an interesting church, though - closer to Oriental Orthodoxy than Catholicism…

Prayers and petitions,
