The Camden Diocese’s Office of Young Adult and Campus Ministries is hosting “Theology on Tap” on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m., at Landmark Americana Tap and Grill, 1 East Mullica Hill Road, in Glassboro.

The evening’s topic is “A Faith That Frees: Catholic Matters for the 21st Century,” with speaker, Jesuit Father  Richard Malloy.

Father Malloy is the vice president for University Ministries at Scranton University. A cultural anthropologist by discipline, Father Malloy’s areas of research and interest include poverty in urban areas, Latinos and immigration, the interaction between Catholic higher education and contemporary culture and the interaction of current cultural trends with the understanding, practice and living of our faith. His book, A Faith That Frees: Catholic Matters for the 21st Century, was honored by the  Catholic Press Association in 2008 in the category of Best Presentation of the Catholic Faith.

Entering the Jesuits in 1976, Father Malloy lived and served at Holy Name Church in North Camden from 1998-2003.

Theology on Tap is a discussion series geared to Catholic young adults and their friends, married and single, in their late teens (18-19), 20s, and 30s.

The evening starts at 7 p.m., with $10 buffet.
