In the afternoon, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was to pay a courtesy visit the Holy Father at the Apostolic Nunciature. The Pope then was to leave for a visit to St. Mary’s Cathedral and hold two meetings at the nearby Archbishop’s House – with the bishops of Bangladesh at the home for elderly priests, and an Inter-religious and Ecumenical Meeting for Peace in the garden.
