Bangladeshi Catholics observe All Souls' Day

Hundreds of Bangladeshi Catholics attended a special Mass and paid respects to their lost loved ones on All Souls' Day at Mary Queen Assumed into Heaven Church in northern Natore district on Nov. 2. The new church was built in 2008, but Catholics have been baptized in the area for generations. There are around 1,500 Catholics in the area, mostly Paharia indigenous people.
