Pope Francis heads to Azerbaijan Sunday for a 10-hour visit aimed at encouraging the country's multi-faith society and likely overlooking recent criticism of a referendum that extends the president's term and powers.Several thousand foreigners make up the rest of the Catholic community, and Azeri Jews, Zoroastrians and other minorities round out Azerbaijan's religious mix.Francis will meet with representatives of all the main faiths as well as President Heydar Aliyev before heading back to Rome Sunday night after a weekend visit that took him first to Georgia.Francis will celebrate Mass in the Catholic church that was built after St. John Paul II visited Azerbaijan in 2002 .Baku's Muslim residents still welcomed Francis' visit.
