Mater Ecclesiae to host talk on bioethical issues

Dr. Lester Ruppersberger, a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist practicing in the Philadelphia area, is coming to Mater Ecclesiae in Berlin on Sunday, May 22, at 9:45 a.m. to address some emerging bioethical issues from the perspective of Dignitas Personae (The Dignity of the Person), the Vatican’s instruction on the promise and perils of biotechnology.

In addition to his private practice, Ruppersberger is the medical advisor for the Family Life Office of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, a certified natural family planning instructor and a regional director representative to the Catholic Medical Association. He is an associate professor in obstetrics/gynecology at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and a radio host on Holy Spirit radio.

Breakfast will be served at the one-hour presentation. There is no cost; donations will be accepted. To register for this event or get more information, call Tracye at 856-816-4907.

All are welcome to attend Latin Mass before or after Ruppersberger’s session. Low Mass is at 8:30 a.m.; High Mass is at 11 a.m.

Mater Ecclesiae has no regional boundaries. It was established to serve Catholics who feel an attachment to the Traditional Latin Mass and sacraments according to the Roman Missal of 1962.
