Young Adults Invited to Theology on Tap

A new program for young adults is debuting in Central Arkansas. Theology on Tap, a national program for Catholics 21 to 39 years old, will be meeting in different pubs and social settings in May.

The program began in the Archdiocese of Chicago in 1981 and is now overseen by Renew International. The Central Arkansas program was initiated and funded by Little Rock Scripture Study.

Participants will be able to discuss various topics on faith and spirituality as well as enjoying free food and a selection of beer and wine. The gatherings begin at 7 p.m.

The schedule is:

  • May 7, Cornerstone Pub, North Little Rock. Father Lawrence Frederick, rector at Catholic High School, "Faith and science: Can a rocket scientist still believe?"
  • May 14, Corky's BBQ restaurant, Little Rock. Bishop Anthony B. Taylor
  • May 21, Cornerstone Pub. Sister Deborah Troillet, president of Mount St. Mary Academy, "Faith and education in an iPod era"
