Soro was baptized in the Assyrian Church of the East. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1982 and to the episcopate in 1984. He served the Assyrian eparchy of the Western United States, and subsequently the eparchy of California. He was a strong supporter of the dialogue between the Assyrian Church of the East and the Catholic Church, and was disappointed when this dialogue was suspended in 2004.
After pursuing studies first at the Catholic University of America in Washington, and later at the Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas in Rome, where he obtained a doctorate, Bishop Mar Bawai Soro (along with nearly one thousand Assyrian Christian families) was received into communion with the Chaldean Catholic Church in May 2008.
Pope Francis appointed Soro auxiliary eparch for the Chaldean Catholic Eparchy of Saint Peter the Apostle of San Diego on January 11, 2014. On October 31, 2017, Pope Francis appointed Soro as eparch of the Chaldean Catholic Eparchy of Mar Addai of Toronto. He was installed on November 29, 2017.
