Theology on Tap: "Christian Courtship in an Oversexed World"

Post by cfnyc on Fri Dec 31, 2010 9:58 pm

This event is open to everyone of all religious denominations, both single and married. The Catholic Fellowship ( is hosting a Theology on Tap on Thursday January 20, 2011 starting at 7:30pm title "Christian Courtship in an Oversexed World."

In a culture in which the sex-saturated TV hit sit-com “Friends” sets the accepted standard of behavior for young single adults, Fr. Thomas G. Morrow’s book, "Christian Courtship in an Oversexed World," is a genuine shocker. Fr. Morrow baldly declares that young adults can and should remain chaste during dating and courtship. What does a celibate priest know about dating and courtship? Well, quite a bit. Tom Morrow, a former engineer, dated frequently until he entered the seminary at age 33.

This is a fascinating and much needed talk. Everyone is invited to attend, and we encourage young adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s to participate as well as neighboring college\university\graduate students. Food and drinks will be available (21+ for alcohol to be served). Please see below for Fr. Morrow's bio.
