Dear Ms. Stadnyk, Ms. Perri, & Ms. Vourvoulias,

What Does the Church Proclaim Regarding Fertility?

2011 marks the third anniversary of the Vatican’s “Instruction Dignitas Personae on Certain Bioethical Questions.”

Recent years have seen a vast increase in reports of infertility and interest in reproductive technology. When employed by a husband and wife, Dignitas Personae says assistance to AID the “marital act” toward procreation can be moral. Even when used by a husband and wife, Dignitas Personae says that methods REPLACING the marital act are immoral.



  • What efforts AID the “marital act”?

  • What efforts REPLACE the “marital act”?

Dignitas Personae beautifully declares, “Behind every ‘no’ in the difficult task of discerning between good and evil, there shines a great ‘yes’ to the recognition of the dignity and inalienable value of every single and unique human being called into existence” [# 37].



  • What sort of discoveries & developments, attest to God’s “Great ‘Yes’” for all of us?

On Saturday, July 23rd (9:30 am) in Holy Trinity Hall, Holy Trinity of Morrisville is honored to host Lester Ruppersberger, D.O. In addition to his private practice, Dr. Ruppersberger is



Thank you,

About Me

I am an enormously blessed husband and dad. In regard to my Catholic theological background, I have a certificate in social ministry & a master's degree (moral theology concentration), as well as a catechetical diploma from the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for the Clergy (Nope, I am not now - nor have I have ever been - a seminarian, deacon, or priest.). I feel particularly proud to have a mandatum. I also have a doctorate in Christian counseling psychology.

And yup, that's me!

And yup, that's me!
