-- Speaker program encourages students to ‘espresso your faith’ --
HAMBURG, N.Y. – Agape Latte is a speaker series program that gives Hilbert College students an opportunity to engage in caffeinated conversations about the intersection between faith and real life. The program kicks off at Hilbert College on Tuesday, March 14 at 7 p.m.
The Spring 2017 semester marks Agape Latte’s first on the Hilbert campus. Agape Latte was started in 2006 by Boston College's Church in the 21st Century Center (C21), the name of the program is derived from the Greek word for the selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love of God (agape). Started just over 10 years ago on the Chestnut Hill, Mass. campus, Agape Latte is spreading across the nation to other Catholic colleges and universities. Through an outreach program supported by an anonymous grant, C21 has expanded the Agape Latte program to over 30 institutions.
Students enjoy coffee, desserts, coffee-house style music, and hear unique stories about friendship, hope, struggle, forgiveness, faith, and relationships in an inviting, casual atmosphere.
This semester will feature two campus leaders sharing a story about their own faith journey and inviting students to reflect on their own life.
