Natural Family Planning Course

6:00 pm
01/09/2017

$100 – registration required

The series of four courses will focus on Natural Family Planning (NFP), fertility awareness that can be used to naturally plan or postpone pregnancy in a healthy, effective, ecological and morally acceptable way. NFP respects God's design for married love and enables its users to work with the body, rather than against it. Fertility is viewed as a gift and a reality to live, not a problem to be solved. 

For more information or to register, please visit http://diometuchen.org/natural-family-planning/ or call (732) 562-1990 ext. 1705 or email family.life@diometuchen.org.
