Upcoming Forum – Heart Issues, Hard Decisions
Subfertility : Ethical options for Catholic couples

This forum addresses an issue that couples and families may face: “subfertility”. Many Catholic couples are painfully aware that IVF is ‘not allowed’ by Church teaching. Are there options then for couples in this situation that are worth their consideration?

Join us in this forum to better understand both the wisdom on which this teaching is grounded, as well as explore with us the lesser known but nonetheless effective – and importantly –ethical options respectful of the gift of fertility and sexual intimacy, that Catholic couples may avail themselves to, such as the Billings Ovulation Method and NaproTechnology.

Date: Saturday 19 Jan 2019
Time: 2 – 4.30 pm
Cost: Love Offering
Venue: Level 3, Cana – The Catholic Centre, 55 Waterloo Street, Singapore 187954

Our Speakers:

  • Moral Theologian Fr David Garcia
  • Obstetrician Dr Douglas Ong

  • NFP Instructor Andy Wee

We hope you will join us at some if not all of these follow up sessions. Share this with your friends too!

But most importantly do continue to join us in prayer for the truth, goodness and beauty of the teachings found in Humanae vitae, indeed all of Christ’s teachings, to be proclaimed and lived by individuals, couples and families everywhere, so that we can all become who we are meant to be, living images of the eternal exchange of love that is the Holy Trinity. 

May God’s Kingdom come and all glory be His forever and ever!
