  3. Connecting young adults to the mission of the Church in the world
  4. Connecting young adults to a peer community to further support and nurture their faith

Theology on Tap

Theology on Tap is a program for Catholic Young Adults and their friends, in their 20’s and 30’s, married and single, to meet together at local bars and restaurants to listen to a speaker, share conversation, gain new insights into the faith, and engage in some theological discussion in a relaxed environment while enjoying some food and drinks.  No need to rsvp; simply show up.  Ordering food/drinks is optional, and everyone covers their own tab.  Nearby TOT chapters are listed below.
