The Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Tor Uja, has disclosed that the Commission will run its 2017 Easter pilgrimage to Israel from April to May.
The NCPC boss in a statement explained that this year’s Easter pilgrimage is designed to afford Christians and all intending pilgrims the opportunity to encounter Christ during the Easter season.
Despite the inflation and cost of dollar, the pilgrimage leaders have resolved that the cost of Easter pilgrimage will still remain at ₦476,000 only, and pilgrims would be entitled to BTA at CBN approved rates.
All Christians are urged to take advantage of this unique opportunity and begin to register. Registration begins now. Forms can be downloaded at NCPC website, at the NCPC offices nationwide, or at States Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board offices throughout the country.
The theme of the 2017 Christian pilgrimage to Israel is “The Cross and the Health of a Nation” with Nigeria in focus. Prominent men of God would be engaged to guide the pilgrims through spiritual sites as well as the prayer convocation on Mount Zion in Jerusalem.
All pilgrims are assured of a refreshing, spiritual, impactful and development-oriented exercise.
Rev. Uja urged Christians and intending pilgrims to contact NCPC and State Christian Pilgrim Welfare Boards and licensed Christian Pilgrimage Operators for the pilgrims’ applications and for more enquiries.
The NCPC boss has assured all intending pilgrims that this year’s edition of Easter pilgrimage would be a hitch free exercise.
