No. The Church guards
& passes on the dogmas already received. She CANNOT create new dogmas.

"For the Church
of Christ, watchful guardian that she is, and defender of the dogmas deposited
with her, never changes anything, never diminishes anything, never adds anything
to them; but with all diligence she treats the ancient documents faithfully and
wisely; if they really are of ancient origin and if the faith of the Fathers has
transmitted them, she strives to investigate and explain them in such a way that
the ancient dogmas of heavenly doctrine will be made evident and clear, but will
retain their full, integral, and proper nature, and will grow only within their
own genus - that is, within the same dogma, in the same sense and the same
meaning." (Pope Pius IX, "Ineffabilis Deus", 1854 A.D.)
