ARCHDIOCESAN YOUNG ADULT SERIES THEOLOGY-ON-TAP NOW UNDERWAY
Speakers, Conversation & Theology for College-aged Men and Women, Single and Married
Chicago, IL (July 10, 2007) – For the 27th consecutive summer, 54 parishes and colleges across Chicagoland are opening their doors to connect young adults’ everyday lives with faith and spirituality as part of the annual Theology-on-Tap program, co-sponsored by the Young Adult Ministry Offices of the Archdiocese of Chicago and Diocese of Joliet.
The two-hour, multilingual sessions take place Sunday through Thursday evenings from July 5 to August 2. Delivered in English, Spanish and Polish, the presentations provide thousands of single and married college-age Catholic men and women the opportunity to meet other like-minded young-adult Catholics while pondering deeper questions about God and life.
Presentation titles include: Text Messaging God - The Conversation of the Eucharistic Prayer; Nuclear Fission: The Eucharistic Theology of Pope Benedict XVI; Intimacy and the Skill of Integrating Mind, Body and Spirit; Immigration Issues In The Context of Faith: The Christian Obligation To Welcome The Stranger; Faith After College: A Graduate's Perspective; and Being A Faithful Person In A Work-A-Day World.
The series concludes on Sunday August 5, with a 3 p.m. Mass at Holy Name Cathedral, State and Superior Streets. The main celebrant will be Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago, and Most Rev. J. Peter Sartain, Bishop of Joliet, will give the homily. Immediately following will be the annual Theology-on-Tap party and picnic on the lawn of Cardinal George’s historic residence just south of Chicago’s Lincoln Park.
