Pope Francis attended a prayer service at Sacred Heart Church, Manama on Sunday morning, before concluding his milestone visit to Bahrain.

The leader of the world's 1.3 billion Catholics prayed with bishops, priests and pastoral workers around 9.30am local time.

At lunchtime, he bid farewell to the island nation, which has been in the global spotlight during the pontiff's four-day visit.

Earlier on Saturday, he celebrated Mass with tens of thousands of worshippers at the Bahrain National Stadium, south of Manama. This is only the second time that a pope has visited the Arabian Gulf, following Pope Francis's visit to Abu Dhabi in 2019.
