Agape Service Project
The Agape Service Project serves migrant farmworkers in Whatcom County through weeklong middle and high school mission trips. Through service-learning immersion experiences, participants learn about human dignity, issues affecting migrant farmworkers and why we as Catholics are called to serve. Through our food bank, community support and time spent with the migrant families, we have the ultimate goal of building personal relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Goals of Agape
- Serving the farmworker community of Whatcom County by providing food, clothing and community support, and building personal relationships.
- Teaching participants about Catholic social justice, especially in response to issues affecting the migrant community.
- Inspiring and encouraging participants to continue answering the call to service throughout their lives.
- Fostering spaces where participants can grow in their faith and meet Jesus through prayer, people and service.
