"AGAPE" is a non-profit charitable organization serving the English speaking and multi-cultural communities of Laval, Quebec since 1976.

Agape is Greek, Hebrew and Latin translated into English, meaning love, a word which became particularly appropriated in Christianity as the love of God for mankind.

A LITTLE HISTORY...

The Youth and Parents AGAPE Association Inc. is a non-profit charitable organization serving the English speaking and multi-cultural communities of Laval, Quebec.

Agape was established in 1976 by Rev. Father Donald O'Rourke, priest at Holy Name of Jesus Parish at the time, together with Leo and Cliffelene Young, dedicated parishioners.

Through the support of volunteers, many people became involved with pick-up, preparation and deliveries of food to needy families in Laval, participating in annual food drives.

It soon became evident that more help was needed to back up Leo and Cliff's great work of love...

AGAPE NOW

AGAPE's main goal remains to feed the needy families and children in our community.

With the support of local schools, churches, organizations and independent donors we are able to arrange annual food drives and distribution among our list of underprivileged families.

After 35 years of history, AGAPE is now serving over 1,250 families and continues to offer other services including:

  • Bread Counter
