Agape, and its verb form agapao, is one of 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 from the benefit of another without expecting anything in return.

In the sophomore year, the Moreau student is given the opportunity to expand his or her awareness of the world through an intense community experience in a day retreat at the Dominican Sisters’ Motherhouse, Mission San Jose in Fremont. The retreat begins with self-examination, then transitions into a look at our community, ending with a look at each student’s commitment to build the Kingdom of God. The day involves self-examination, group discussion, and sharing of their own experiences.

Students: You will be attending the sophomore retreat with your Moral Theology class. Please see the date below to find out when you will be attending. Parental consent will be needed to attend this mandatory retreat. Parental consent will be granted through the Appryse system.
