We bring yet again another session of Theology on Tap, an evening full of joviality, and fellowship in Christ. Assumption Church will be hosting Theology on Tap on Tuesday, February 17th at 7:30PM, at the Taormina Restaurant 59 Hudson Avenue, Peekskill. Discussion to be led by Father Richard Veras (a priest of the Archdiocese of New York, educator at Our Lady of Lourdes High School in Poughkeepsie, and he also writes for the Magnificat Magazine), his topic will be: "Love that is vs. Love that pretends to be". Please join us for a night of fellowship, food, and drinks.  Hope to see you there!
