“Theology-on-Tap” returns to the South Side starting July 13 at St. Bernadette Church in Evergreen Park.
Young adults throughout the Archdiocese of Chicago are invited to attend this free four-week speaker and conversation geared toward men and women in their twenties and thirties.
This year, “South Side Theology-on-Tap” will feature four different speakers and topics, including:
July 13 - Dr. Andrea Stapleton - "Sacraments and the Catholic Call to Justice"
July 20 - Fr. Corey Brost, C.S.V. - "Faith and Politics: Faithful Citizenship"
July 27 - Fr. Michael Scherschel - "Discerning God's Call"
August 3 - 10:30 a.m. Mass, celebrated by Fr. Jim Lause, O.F.M., followed by lunch and a theological reflection on the Mass by Rev. Ron Lewinski.
During the series, young adults will gather on four consecutive Sundays for a talk on faith, vocations, and responsible citizenship, and spend time sharing information with one another.
The first three sessions (July 13, 20 and 27) begin at 6:30 p.m. with a free dinner and opportunity for socialization, with the speaker beginning at 7:30 p.m. Young adults will have the opportunity to meet people with similar values, and become updated on what it means to be an adult Catholic.
The series concludes on Sunday, August 3, at 10:30 a.m. with Mass celebrated at St. Bernadette Church, 9343 S. Francisco, Evergreen Park. Following the Mass, there will be a theological reflection. Lunch will be served, and there will be opportunities for socialization and conversation. (There will be no speaker in the evening on August 3.)
Also, for the first time, free childcare will be offered for children ages 2 and up for young parents who wish to attend the series
