Natural Family Planning

The NFP ministry’s purpose is to teach engaged and married couples how to identify, record, and interpret bodily signs of fertility so that they are able, with high effectiveness, to space the births of their children. Basic concepts of Pope John Paul’s Theology of the Body are also taught so that couples can grow in their understanding of the truth and meaning of human sexuality.

Membership: Couples join in promotion and teaching efforts through personal conviction. Often encouragement from clergy is helpful to get couples started in teaching and promotion.

NFP provides safe, healthy, effective and morally acceptable alternative to contraception that is completely reversible and accepted by the Catholic Church. Classes are taught right here at St. Gertrude by professionally trained teaching couples.
