Life. Love. Faith. Let's talk about it.
Agape Latte is both a program and a community. It is primarily student led, and the team works together to coordinate two keynote events each semester engaging with the intersection of life, love, and faith. We are an interfaith organization with our roots in Ignatian spirituality, and we aim to provide opportunities for the Loyola community to further their spiritual journey within an accessible social environment. Furthermore, we work to foster this open and thoughtful spirit amongst each other and within the greater Loyola community!
Our events consist of lots of free coffee, tea, delicious desserts, and caffeinated conversation. We invite a student to perform a talent (such as music, although we have had a comedian before!) to warm up the crowd, compete in some fun trivia, listen to our faculty or staff speaker share personal anecdotes on a particular theme, and have plenty of time for Q&A. We can't wait to see you there!
Time: 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Location: The Den
Snacks: Coffee, tea, cake, and more!
Spring 2020 Dates:
- February 11
- April 7
Due to University closures, our April 7 event will be broadcast on Instagram Live at 7:00 pm CST. Follow our instagram @LUC_agapelatte for updates!
