The Dead Theologians Society met for the first time at St. Anthony of Padua parish Sunday, October 1st.

The meeting began with a cookout with hot dogs and s'mores in the backyard of the rectory before moving into the loft (the attic) of the parish center.

Because no other group uses the loft we can decorate it and do virtually whatever we want to it. The kids are supposed to think of some ideas to paint the room and we'll take a vote on the ideas. They are also already suggesting various service projects and trips that we might take.

The next meeting of the D.T.S. will be held Sunday, October 15th at 7:00 p.m. The social time of the meeting will involve a brief tour of the rectory and the topic for the meeting will be ...
