Our Services

The Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC) works closely with the Embassy of Nigeria to the Holy See in ensuring our Pilgrims from Nigeria are supported during their spiritual journey to Rome and other Holy Places in Italy.
Pilgrimage is all year round, but with major waves in activity in the months preceding the Holy Week of Easter and again in the months of October through December - the Christmas period -.
There are pre-visits by the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission during which pilgrim sites and facilities including accommodation and transport, as well as content of events prepared by the ground-handlers are reviewed.
The Embassy provides support for the NCPC through Embassy staff familiar with the terrain.
It is our duty to ensure that our citizens are treated well and that they all work within the confines of the laws of the country they are visiting.

The Vision of NCPC is to be an Organization providing excellent services and administration to Nigerian Christians who perform pilgrimage to Holy Sites around the world. An organization with high spiritual content capable of being translated into action for national development security, probity, accountability, in line with the policy of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The Mission of NCPC, as stated by its website, is to provide conducive environment for the smooth air–lifting of pilgrims to Holy Sites and to ensure enhanced welfare, responsible leadership at all levels, Federal and States, for hitch–free pilgrimage exercise throughout the year; and to supervise any interested body or organization for the purposes of Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Sites globally.
