Catholic Bioethics: Moral Decision-Making in Uncertain Times

Aug 30, 2022

6:30PM – 9:00PM

120 French Road, Rochester, NY

Join the St. Bernard’s community either in-person or virtually as we celebrate the launch of the Graduate Certificate in Catholic Bioethics! We are thrilled to feature three renowned speakers reflecting upon different dimensions of Catholic Bioethics:

  • Key Note Speaker: Rev. Tadeusz Pacholczyk, Ph.D., Education Director at The National Catholic Bioethics Center
  • Jean Baric-Parker, D. Be., Program Director of St. Bernard’s Graduate Certificate in Catholic Bioethics
  • Peter J. Colosi, Ph.D., Assoc. Professor of Philosophy, Salve Regina University; Adjunct Faculty, St. Bernard’s

All three speakers have played an essential role in the development of St. Bernard’s new Graduate Certificate; the evening will also feature more information about this initiative! Fr. Tad will be giving the evening's keynote talk on, "Catholic Bioethics, Common Sense, and Emotional Pregnancy Cases in a Post-Roe World.”

This free, special event is offered by way of a unique collaboration between St. Bernard’s and the National Catholic Bioethics Center, which jointly offers a pathway to this new Graduate Certificate in Catholic Bioethics. The certificate provides a dynamic introduction to contemporary bioethics from a distinctively Catholic perspective, with a focus given to the theological and philosophical principles underlying Church teaching and their practical application to real-life pastoral, academic, and health care situations.
