Melkite Catholic in communion with Rome?



A friend of my daughter is a Melkite Catholic.
My question is are they in full communion with Rome?
Can they receive communion at a Roman Catholic church?

God Bless


Yes, the Melikites were reunited with Rome in the 18th century. Your daughter’s friend may receive the Eucharist in your daughter’s Church and visa versa.
