Why you have Pilgrim Tours

in your Pilgrim City of course. Now that is divinely creative!

Naga has been dubbed a Pilgrim City and as a result The Church is organizing Pilgrim Tours, to encourage people to visit churches, basilica’s and cathedrals on both land and via river on fluvial tours. Annually over 2 million people a year visit Naga for pilgrim tours. Take a brief listen on this 3 minute podcast.
