- About USCCB
A diocesan NFP teacher’s primary role is to provide NFP instruction and
follow-up to couples/clients. He or she conveys respect for each
couple/client and promotes their autonomy in the use of NFP.
By integrating Catholic teaching on human sexuality, marriage, and family life into their instruction, a diocesan NFP teacher encourages couples/clients to grow in their marital relationship.
Diocesan NFP teachers are accountable to and work in cooperation with the diocesan NFP coordinator.
