There is no cost to attend or to register! Participants are welcome to purchase food and beverage from the menu.
Protecting the Pope: What We Knew Then, What We Know Now
While Saint John Paul II was loved and adored by many during his papacy, there are always dangers associated with being a public figure. In our next Theology on Tap presentation, Fr. Frederick Riegler, Pastor of St. Isidore Parish, Quakertown, will speak about his experience assisting the Secret Service in their protection of the now Saint John Paul II during his 1979 visit to Philadelphia. Fr. Riegler’s testimony will touch on the 1981 assassination attempt and what we know now about the parties who threatened the safety of Saint John Paul II during his papacy. Join us Monday, Feb. 12 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at Bar Louie in the Promenade Shops (2960 Center Valley Pkwy., Center Valley). Event is free of charge. Food and beverage can be ordered from the menu.
