Pope Francis arrived in Bahrain on Thursday, November 4th, making this past weekend quite an eventful one for the Kingdom

The Pope arrived for a four-day tour of the Kingdom, in which he first visited the Bahrain Forum for Dialogue: East and West for Human Coexistence in Awali, where he also met Muslim leaders. The Pope then made his way to Our Lady of Arabia Cathedral for Mass, prayer, and meetings with the Catholic community of Bahrain.

The crowd was super excited to welcome him to Bahrain National Stadium

More than 30,000 people gathered at the site Friday night, in excitement to see the Pope on Saturday, November 5th. Some arrived a little past Friday midnight, just to secure a good seat at the location!
