Love, Sex & Marriage

“Ethics of Love, Sex & Marriage”
Starting 1 July 2021 (Thursdays)
7.30pm
By Rev Fr David Garcia, O.P.

What sexual behaviours does the Church consider immoral? Is pre-marital sex permissible? Should homosexual people be able to marry?

Why is there great discrepancy between traditional Christian morality and contemporary culture on sexuality? Can the Church impose its views on society at large? Who decides?

Let us explore these questions and much more in Module 4 of My Personal Moral Compass (MPMC) on Ethics of Love, Sex and Marriage!

Module 4 will start on 01 July 2021 and will be held weekly on Thursdays over Zoom live at 7:30 pm for seven weeks.

To register: https://bit.ly/2RYKMjT

For enquiries, please email Caritas Singapore at mpmc@caritas-singapore.org
