The next Columbus Theology On Tap winter session will be on Thursday, February 21st. Our topic is - Theology of the Body. Aaron Richards from St. Agatha will be joining us at El Vaquero at 2030 Olentangy River Rd., from 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Aaron will be talking to us about, what does being human mean?  What does it mean to be made “in God’s image?”  And why does it matter?  In just one night we’ll take a look at some of the core messages of John Paul II’s incredible anthropological work, the “Theology of the Body.”  The Theology of the Body is a lens through which every facet of Christianity takes on exciting, renewed and vibrant meaning, but perhaps, most importantly, it will challenge you to answer the question “Who am I? ...And why?”  Join us for great Mexican food and drinks, small group discussion and prayer. Theology on Tap is an invitation for young adults to learn more about their faith and to share in their Catholic community. For additional information visit
