Farming is not just for cows

GROVELAND | You’ve never seen “Theology on Tap” presented this way. Surrounded by cows and goats, young adults ages 18-24 spent summer evenings under the Menner Family Farm pavilion in Groveland to hear various speakers on a variety of topics.

From marriage and spiritual healing to their final presentation, Aug. 27, on “Time, Talent, and Treasure” presented by Carlos Bernard, the series has proven successful – bringing young adults from eight parishes together.

The format and location were the brainchild of Blessed Sacrament, Clermont parishioner Kaitlin Menner. “When I turned 18 and was discerning which path to take for school and my career, God put the word ‘community’ on my heart,” she said. “Ever since obtaining my degree in Organizational Management it’s been my goal to plan events that help people grow in community and grown closer to God.”

Menner said Faith on the Farm was important because she wanted a space for young Catholic adults to gather and grow in faith, while forming new friendships. She prays it continues to grow while feeling blessed by all whom she’s met.

The final event of the summer series is Saturday, Aug. 27 from 7-9 p.m. Menner hopes for new sessions during Advent and possibly Lent.
