I've just found out that there is a Romanian church in Damascus:
http://www.jurnalul.ro/stire-credinta/craciun-romano-arab-in-damasc-532034.html
There is a church given to the Arabs in Bucharest, as well, "Sf. Dumintru Posta" (St. Demetrius behind/near the Post Office"):
http://costeamircea.blogspot.com/2010/04/v-biserica-sfantul-dumitru-posta-si.html
Anyhow, the patriarchs of Antiochs used to have a metochion in Bucharest ever since the first half of the 18th century, in the church of "St. Spiridon the old" (Sf. Spiridon vechi), sadly demolished during Communism, but now rebuilt in the original shape.

al-masiiH qaam! Hristod a inviate!

Multumesc/shurkan!

Somewhere I have an article on the history of Arab studies in Romania, which goes back centuries. The Metropolitan press gave the first Arab press in Antioch, the first in the Arab world.

Adevarat a inviat!
The Copts too, occasionally celebrate their rites at the church of St. Catherine's (Sf. Ecaterina), with the approval of the Romanian patriarchate (some protests notwithstanding):

ialmisry,
Since you read Romanian, here is an interesting article-historical survey- on the Arab-Romanian Christian relations.

Foarte interesant! The picture labeled "Portal de biserica" conflicts with the inscription, which identifies it as "'Izz al-Din Bath: Night and Day: From 12 to 4 for women: afterwards 4 to 12 for men."  Izz al-Din is a Sunni Muslim name.  The Lamb, of corse, says "Behold the Lamb of God" in Latin (so I am assuming Maronite?).

See the attached document on the historic relationship between the Arabs of the Antiochian Patriarchate and the Romanian Principalities.

Don't know anything about Maronites but many people assume all Gypsies (misnomer as many believed they originally came from Egypt) or Roma are Romanian. Roma have been in Eastern and Western Europe for many centuries and whilst much of their language is similar to Romanian there are differences. Unfortunately Romania bears the brunt of peoples xenophobia about Roma families and also it seems there are pockets of larger communities in Western Europe which have recently been more troublesome and made the press . Sadly in Romanian as well the Roma are not liked by many people but I believe about 2.5% to 3 % of the population are Roma according to official census. The true population may in reality be higher. I know Gypies of all denominations in Romania - Orthodox, Catholic and Prentecostal.

I thought the Albainians were number one ,in being disliked thur out Europe, but it seems Roma have the Ist place....Greeks iv talked to don't care for the Albainians they never mentioned Gypises though....Hummm
Iv' read a article about Spain doing a great Job Intergating the roma people in to there society,Educating them ,,The only way they get any benefits is there children must attend school....Hopefully the rest of Europe will follow suit...

Pupacios,
Romanian and Romany are totally different language: the first neo-Latin, the second a West Indian/Aryan language, akin to Gujarati etc.
