Pope Francis visit to Myanamar & Bangladesh

Pope Francis visit to Myanamar & Bangladesh

November 27, 2017 December 2, 2017

Pope Francis will travel to Myanmar and Bangladesh from November 27 to December 2, two countries in which Christians are a minority: making up 0.3 percent in Bangladesh and five percent in Myanmar.

The pope will be in Myanmar, formerly Burma, from November 27 to 30, and he will visit the ancient capital Rangoon and the new Naypyidaw. His visit is a nod to the Rohingya Muslim minority, who are considered illegal and are marginalized in the country.
