Lay faithful of Our Lady of Assumption Parish, Nkpor rencetly embarked on pilgrimage to the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity, Onitsha where they prayed and passed through the Holy Door of Mercy.

            They were led in the journey by their Parish Priests, Rev. Fr. Benignus Oguejiofor.

            Their decision to embark on the pilgrimage was conceived during the parish Laity Week held recently at the Parish with the theme, ‘Blessed Are the Merciful’, to commemorate the year of Mercy.

            While flagging off the Parish Laity Council Week, the chairman Mr. Nathan Anyanwu read the National Presidents address and outlined programme of activities which was facilitated by Bro Francis Anyaogu.

            He encouraged Parishioners to avail themselves of the opportunity offered by Pope Francis to visit the Holy Door of Mercy.

            In his contribution, Bro Jude Eze gave analyusis on the topic, ‘forgiveness and Mercy’ and urged the Parishioners to imbibe the spirit of forgiveness.

            Also as a follow-up to the 2016 Synod, the Parishioners after the Laity Week, paid charity visits to the Motherless Babies Home, Nkpor with various gifts and cash.

            Earlier, some other societies and organizations had embarked on Pilgrimage to the Basilica with the Parish Priest; Rev. Fr. Oguejiofor.

            They offered prayers at the relics of Blessed Iwene Cyprian Tansi after being taken round the Basilica premises by Rev. Fr. Jude Muokwe.
