Natural Family Planning
What is Natural Family Planning? Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a natural way to postpone or achieve pregnancy, based on an awareness of a woman's fertility. It is medically safe, 99% effective, very low cost and often has a positive effect on the couple's marriage, and is morally acceptable to all major religions.
"The Church teaches that the sacrament of marriage symbolizes Christ’s relationship with His Church. What is this relationship but one of generous, self-sacrificing passion-filled and fruitful love! When couples live their vocation according to Church teachings, especially with regard to the transmission of life, many benefits can be reaped. Indeed, married couples who use Natural Family Planning (NFP) report that the benefits include: better communication between spouses; deeper understanding of each other’s bodies and consequent growth in respect and awe of God’s gift of fertility; growth in patience and emotional maturity; growth in understanding of the supreme gift of children; and growth in holiness as they seek to place God as the head of the household."
When and where do we meet? Classes run in a three month cycle with 4 classes per year. We meet one Sunday per month for the duration of the class allowing couples to gain experience with the method of observing, recording and interpreting signs of their mutual fertility. We meet in the conference room located in the church undercroft begining at 2:00 PM. Please refer to the Couple to Couple League's web site: http://ccli.org/learn/chapter/cincinnati.php for the list of available classes and start dates.
