Theology on Tap this Thursday, 8/13/2015

Pope Francis is coming to the Archdiocese of Washington and you are invited to be a part of the journey! This September we welcome Pope Francis first and foremost by committing to follow his inspirational example. We are challenging local individuals and organizations to take the pledge to Walk with Francis by choosing to pray or serve or act in a new way to advance his mission and ministry in the next year. Your pledge will be presented as a gift to the Holy Father during his visit. Visit walkwithfrancis.org to take the pledge online.
