The Perfect Brew of Faith & Fun: Theology on Tap
Tuesdays, July 18, 25, August 1 & 8 • 7:00 p.m. at Las Fuentes (2558 N. Halsted St.)
Theology on Tap (TOT) is a 4-week speaker and conversation series for young adults in their 20s and 30s, married or single. TOT is designed to provide a welcoming environment for young adults to connect with their peers and to engage topics pertinent to the faith and life of young adults. Our parish will be focusing on the "Learn It" track, where we will join together to focus on how each one of us can further develop our relationship with Jesus Christ and deepen our understanding of the Catholic faith.
All events this summer will be held at Las Fuentes (2558 N. Halsted St.). We begin at 7:00 p.m. with registration, food and drink. The program starts at 7:30 p.m. Spend less time in line and more time socializing. Pre-register for TOT here!
Each participant over 21 will receive one free drink ticket. If you bring a friend who has never been to Theology on Tap before, you and your guest will receive a second drink ticket. Las Fuentes will be offering a special $15 buffet option each night featuring an appetizer and entree.
