Natural Family Planning


Preparation for Marriage

Helping couples to deepen conjugal love and achieve responsible parenthood is part of the Church's total pastoral ministry to Catholic spouses. This ministry includes both education and pastoral care. Natural Family Planning reflects the dignity of the human person within the context of marriage and family life, promotes the openness to life, and recognizes the value of the child. By respecting the love and life-giving nature of marriage, Natural Family Planning can enrich the bond between husband and wife.
