Tulsa Catholic Young Adults is hosting their monthly Theology on Tap on Tuesday, July 8, at the sidebar at McNellie’s Pub (409 E 1st St). Fr. Elkin J. González was born in Sucre, Northern Colombia. In 2008, he received his Master in Divinity, and was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Slattery in his native country. After a few years serving out his ministry in Tulsa, he was sent to Rome for advanced studies in Spiritual Theology at the Pontifical Institute of Spirituality “Teresianum”. In Rome, he earned in 2012 a Licentiate in Spirituality and a Doctorate in the same area in April 2014 with a dissertation on “The Religious Experience of Enthusiasm and the Concept of Animo in Teresa of Avila”. In February 2014, he returned to the Diocese of Tulsa, and was assigned as Director of Vocations and Associate Pastor of Christ the King.
