To enhance your parish bulletin, select quotes from the Church's magisterial documents, the writings of NFP pioneers and statements by NFP couples posted in the topics below. Please feel free to "edit down" those quotes that may be too technical; however, continue to provide the full citation of the source. Be sure to include local diocesan NFP information with each quote in the bulletin. To locate the name of your diocesan NFP coordinator, see: www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/marriage-and-family/natural-famliy-planning/find-an-nfp-class.cfm. Please note, NFP "Distance Education" is also provided on this page. You may also want to include this information about where married couples can learn an NFP method in the comfort of their homes!
The Couple to Couple League has NFP resources for clergy. The "Clergy Packet". . . includes a variety of easy to read brochures that include general information on the science and couple-relationship building benefits of NFP. The brochures not only provide clergy with brief but reliable information, but also can be used as educational tools for parishioners.
NFP Outreach offers parish missions focused on God's gift of married love and Natural Family Planning. Founded by Fr. Daniel McCaffrey, NFP Outreach has a standardized format but will tailor the mission to the needs of a particular parish. Fr. Dan is assisted by Fr. Matthew Habiger, OSB and Deacon Rick Condon. In addition, Fr. Dan has several physicians who take part in the mission offering talks on NFP science and methodology.
