Moira McQueen, executive director of the Canadian Catholic Bioethics Institute, will deliver a public lecture online at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, in acknowledgement of her receipt of the Christian Culture Gold Medal from Assumption University.
The institute conducts research and education in bioethics from a Roman Catholic perspective. Dr. McQueen has taught moral theology at St. Michael’s Graduate Faculty of Theology in the University of Toronto since 1994.
Assumption University has bestowed the Christian Culture Gold Medal each year since 1941 on an “outstanding exponent of Christian ideals.” It depicts a human hand holding a mustard plant with the Latin inscription “Simile est regnum caelorum grano sinapis” or “the kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed.”
McQueen’s lecture is available for viewing on the Assumption University website.
