Msgr Costa was a friend of Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) for twenty years.  The international organization supported his pastoral work first in the diocese of Dinajpur in 2011 and later in Chittagong when it became a diocese in 2017.

We assisted him in building churches and chapels in remote areas – presbyteries and convents  as well, which allowed priests and religious alike to live close to the population.  He took care of developing and growing vocations in his archdiocese and the training of priests and religious along with the faithful.

During ACN’s last visit to his archdiocese, the bishop’s social commitment to the needy and outcasts truly touched us.


May God welcome him with His loving abundance!
