Agape, and its verb form agapao, is one of the several Greek words for love. Agape love is a little different. IT is not a feeling; it's a motivation for action that we are free to choose and reject. Agape is a sacrificial love that voluntarily suffers inconvenience, discomfort, and even death fro the benefit of another without expecting anything in return. We are called to agape love through Christ's example: "Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us to God."
In the Sophomore year, the Moreau student is given the opportunity to expand their awareness of their world through an intense community experience in a day retreat at the Mother House in Fremont. The retreat begins with self-examination, then transitions into a look at our community, ending with a look at each students commitment to build the Kingdom of God. The day involves self-examination, group discussion, and sharing of their own experiences.
