Welcome to Theology on Tap in the greater Lafayette area!
Theology on Tap is a chance for adults in their 20’s and 30’s to come together for good times, good speakers, and good beer. We typically meet once a month at Harry’s Chocolate Shop in West Lafayette, but due to COVID are currently meeting in Newman Hall at St. Tom’s. Come join us for a time to renew your faith and get to know other people with similar faiths and interests in a casual and fun atmosphere.
Every session we invite a different speaker for a BRIEF presentation on faith issues that directly relate to your life in a modern world. Strengthen your faith by talking about real-world topics grounded in the teachings of Christ and of the Church. Each speaker talks about an area of interest to you and then, unlike a typical lecture, leaves time to answer YOUR questions and concerns.
Come join us at our next event, grab a brew, meet a friend, and learn something new… all in the comfort of a great local bar!

With the lack of ministry to young adults in larger cities, Fr Jack Wall, a priest at St. James in the Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights, created Theology on Tap®. His parish would host six speakers throughout the summer for college students home from school. The program culminated with a cook-out at the Bishop’s residence. TOT’s popularity spread throughout the Chicago area, with many parishes copying Fr Wall’s work. Now in its 25th year, young adults can find Theology on Taps in 46 states and 6 countries! A great deal of gratitude is due to these first groups of priests and young Catholics from Chicago for creating such a successful ministry.
St. Tom’s is the sponsoring parish for Theology on Tap within the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana. This ministry is geared towards both Purdue students and resident parishioners. We would like for EVERY young adult in the Greater Lafayette area to feel welcome at our gatherings.
Social hour begins at 7:00. Sessions begin at 7:30 with a short presentation from a speaker who is an expert on topics related to modern-day Christian living. After the short presentation, the floor is opened to questions from anyone who might have one. The rest of the time is devoted to socializing and getting to know one another and supporting each other in our shared Catholic Faith. Come early and have dinner with us or come just for the presentation and social time, either way, come… enjoy… learn.
