Theology on Tap series set to open Feb. 4 in Monmouth
MONMOUTH — The consecrated life, mercy, and a journey from atheism to Catholicism will be topics when a new Theology on Tap series opens Feb. 4 and continues for two more Thursday evenings at Alfano’s Pizza, 206 S. Main St.
Theology on Tap in the Monmouth area is an opportunity for adults of all ages to meet in the relaxed setting of a bar and restaurant to explore questions of faith. It is sponsored by CONNECT Ministry, a group for young adults of Immaculate Conception Parish in Monmouth, and the Diocese of Peoria.
There is no charge to attend, though participants may order food and beverages. Socializing begins at 6:15 p.m., with the talks scheduled for 7.
Participants need not attend all nights. Following are the topics and presenters:
Feb. 4: “Nun the Wiser,” a discussion of the consecrated life led by Sister Mary and Sister Karine, members of the Community of St. John in Princeville.
Feb. 18: “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” an exploration of true mercy, how it changes us, and how we can pass the gift on to others. Father Tony Dittmer, pastor of the LaSalle Catholic parishes, will be the speaker.
March 3: “From Atheism to Catholicism,” presented by Catholic author and speaker Dr. Kevin Vost, who will explain how atheistic thinkers drew him away from his faith in his late teens, and how the Holy Spirit drew him back to the Christ and the Catholic church 25 years later.
