Theology on Tap
Join other young adults from the Fort Wayne area on Thursday, April 24, at 6:30 PM at Calhoun Street Soups, Salads & Spirits as the Young Adult Ministry office of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend presents Theology on Tap. Facebook & website
Come hear Dr. Eustace Fernandes, Pulmonology and Critical Care Doctor, speak on a Catholic approach to end of life issues.
Dignity is referenced on both sides of the euthanasia debate: those who support it emphasize "dying with dignity," those who oppose it speak of the "dignity of the human person from birth to natural death." Not often, however, do we hear from a medical practitioner who faces, daily, the moral struggle of adhering to modern medical standards while meeting the suffering and ill face to face.
Theology on Tap is a speaker and conversation series for young adults in their 20s & 30s, single and married, to learn more about the Catholic faith, enter into conversation with their peers, and make connections between faith and everyday life.
