Join us in our Community Life
College students and groups join Agape for a week or a month to experience immersion in our community, to work, to organize, and to enjoy. Interns engage through learning and service and take on a wide range of responsibilities including assistance with office and organizational needs.
Personal & Group Retreats
Agape welcomes individuals and organizations for retreats for a week or less. For those interested in retreats we provide silence and walks to Quabbin Reservoir. We can accommodate up to 20 people and host numerous college and adult groups annually.

Any campus organizations, especially those focusing on green education and environmental issues, including reduced lifestyle, can request a program at Agape for a day, a weekend, or longer. Retreat dates are available throughout the year. Donations and meals are arranged with Agape staff according to numbers and length of time.
Agape hosts a variety of annual events open to the public. Events bring hundreds of like-minded people to join together for peace every year. Events include Saint Francis Day, Saint Brigid Day, our annual Stations of the Cross vigil and fast at the Massachusetts State House, annual Spirituality and the Arts evening, and the annual Advent Vigil.
Agape Community members take part in a range of nonviolent actions throughout the year. We invite the extended community and like-minded activist to join us. Signup for our mailing list to receive announcements of upcoming events.
Our lives and community are sustained by ongoing physical work on the homestead supported by volunteers. We hold an annual spring and fall workday at Agape where volunteers come to help us plant our gardens, chop wood, till our soil, landscape our grounds, and much more!
