Suzanne Belote Shanley and Brayton Shanley
are co-founders of The Agape Community, a lay Catholic residential community on 34 acres of land in Central MA. Started 37 years ago, Agape has welcomed hundreds for retreats and rural immersion to learn contemplation, nonviolence and sustainability. The community is involved in interfaith dialogue and practice, including witness and action against war and capital punishment, and has hosted gatherings to listen to those experiencing racial injustices.
