I don't see why there would be an issue in the surrogacy itself. But I'm not the expert theologian. I think the surrogacy aspect is awesome.
I dont want to get into a theological debate but I believe that catholic church id against any intervention in terms of fertility. They consider it immoral and outside the sanctity of marriage. I guess its right up their with infidelity. My mom's friend's daughter married a strictly catholic man and when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, her husband wouldnt permit her to have her eggs frozen although they desperately wanted children. I think it would serve you to investigate a bit more the issue.
