Natural Family Planning

NFP Poster 2012

Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a way of life. While NFP provides a scientifically sound means of achieving or avoiding pregnancy, it is so much more. NFP is a way of life that allows couples to build on their marriage relationship with greater trust, care, and concern, and to experience the ways of true love.

As a married or engaged couple, you may be learning about Natural Family Planning (NFP) for the first time.  While instruction in a method of NFP can focus on the biology of our fertility, the practice of NFP can mean far more.  Couples have asked some common questions about the Church’s teaching on human sexuality and a helpful website is available to provide answers to help you grow in understanding God’s plan of life and love for you.
