I was wondering if the Coptic Orthodox Church is in full Communion with the Antiochian Orthodox Church. Are Coptic Christians allowed to commune at Antiochian churches and visa versa?

The Antiochian Orthodox Church is a Chalcedonian Church and is part of the Eastern Orthodox group of Churches while the Coptic Orthodox Church is a Non-Chalcedonian Church and part of the Oriental Orthodox group. These two groups are not in full communion with each other. Therefore Coptic Christians cannot partake of the Communion at the Antiochian Church.
