Bangladeshi Catholics observe All Souls' Day

Thousands of Bangladeshi Catholics attended a special Mass and paid tributes to their lost loved ones on All Souls' Day at Holy Rosary Church in central Dhaka on Nov. 2. The church, built in 1677 by Portuguese missionaries, is the largest Catholic church in the country. Pope Francis paid a visit to the church and the adjacent cemetery during his visit to Bangladesh in 2017.
