First Pilgrimage to the Diocese of Toliara, Madagascar

July 12th -26th, 2018


We invite you to join us on the first ever Pilgrimage to the Diocese of Toliara, Madagascar with Bishop Todd and Rev. Patsy McGregor.  


Come explore the beauties of God’s creation in one of the world’s loveliest but poorest countries.  See fascinating rocks and minerals, beautiful woodcarvings, weaving and embroidery, and wildlife, trees and plants unique to Madagascar, such as lemurs, chameleons, baobabs, the spiny forest and more! 


Find out why the Malagasy are drawn to Jesus and what their faith means to them.  Learn about the joy in their lives despite the challenges they face. 


Simon and Sue Babbs (who are on the board of People Reaching People and visited the Diocese of Toliara in 2014, 2015 and 2016) will be facilitating this pilgrimage from Antananarivo to Toliara in the last two weeks of July 2018.  


From the evening of July 14th onwards, Bishop Todd or Rev Patsy McGregor will be with the tour each day, providing spiritual guidance and insights into the lives of the Malagasy.  Each day we will reflect on Bible passages and themes, as we learn more about the Malagasy culture and the beauty of God’s creation.


Please contact Sue Babbs with any questions.
