    America Magazine Editors Speak at Campus Ministries' Theo...

    April 9, 2019

    On Friday, April 6, the Office of Campus Ministries sponsored its final Theology on Tap of the academic year. The presenters were Zac Davis, Olga Segura and Ashley McKinless who are all Associate Editors for America Magazine and creators of the magazine’s “Jesuitical Podcast.”  

    Theology on Tap (TOT) programs are sponsored by Catholic colleges and dioceses around the country. TOT engages young adults to come together in a familiar and comfortable bar/restaurant setting to hear presentations for discussions about faith and religion.  

    McKinless, Segura and Davis began their presentation by sharing their personal faith journey stories with the over 30 Scranton students who attended as a lead up to how, in their 20’s, they came to be editors forAmerica. They also shared clips from their podcast which helped them explain how their main goal is to help young adults know that there is room in the Church for “questioning Catholics” and for those who are still working out our ownership of faith.

    “As a graduate student,” commented Marie MacTigue, a graduate occupational therapy student in the Class of 2019, “Theology on Tap has been an excellent means to keep me connected to the University. I am striving to maneuver ways in which I can stay close to my faith beyond my life at Scranton. TOT has been an excellent stepping stone for that! It is a casual community in which I’m able to simply be present and learn about faith through others!”
