Monsignor Vincenzo Paglia

On September 3rd, the Bioethics Institute had the honor to host a special event with the Vatican's Monsignor Vincenzo Paglia, President of the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAV). Monsignor Paglia held a lecture on the topic: “Toward a Global and Environmental Responsibility: Pope Francis and the Renewed Agenda for Bioethics.”


Monsignor Paglia accepted the invitation from the Bioethics Institute Director Dr. Roberto Dell’Oro, also an academic at PAV. Monsignor Paglia stopped briefly in Los Angeles to graciously visit LMU and expound upon cultural growth, before heading to meet with Microsoft CEO in Seattle, Washington.
