Who We Are

Theology on Tap is a monthly Catholic discussion series for all young adults in their 20’s and 30’s — married, single, devout or still trying to figure it out. Topics focus on faith and contemporary issues that directly affect the lives of young adults.

Theology on Tap seeks to put into action Pope Francis’ words to bring the Gospel of Christ into the streets and to speak it from the housetops, and to go to where people are. Theology on Tap aims to quench the spiritual thirst of young adults by discussing the faith and teachings of the Catholic Church in a comfortable environment.

To some the name Theology on Tap suggests that this program promotes the use of alcohol. To others it suggests a relaxed, social environment where young adults gather. Although most sites where our evenings are offered do serve beer and wine, all sites offer alternatives for those who do not wish to drink.


Theology on Tap was founded in June 1981 in Illinois, as the result of a conversation between a recent college graduate and his priest. The college graduate asked the priest “I know what I’m doing. I just don’t know why I’m doing it. Can the Church help me with the ‘why’ questions?” Motivated by this question, the priest put together a six-week speaker and discussion series for him and other students and called it “Theology on Tap”.

Since that time, the program has spread throughout the United States, and at least six other countries, including Canada.
